Briefings : Tornado engines, RAF Jackals, Cyber attack

Rolls-Royce have won a 15 year contract to support the RAF's fleet of Tornadoes RB199 engines up until the planned retirement of the Tornado in 2025. The RAF Regiment meanwhile has taken delivery of it's first Jackal 2 armoured vehicles to replace Land Rovers in Afghanistan.

China is suspected as being behind a cyber-attack on India. Files on Indian missile projects and other military information are said to have been taken in the attack in which a number of Indian military computers and those of related agencies were attacked. The first mission-system equipped F-35 has entered flight testing, though the first flight of this first F-35 equipped with sensors, including APG-81 AESA radar, is a year late.
