The MRCA 75, known as the Tornado, was jointly developed in the 1970s by the UK, Germany and Italy. The aircraft went into active service in 1982 and is capable of supersonic acceleration - it can reach Mach 2.34 (2,417 km/h) and has a range of 1,400 km. As an integral part of the Comando della Squadra Aerea, these multi-purpose combat aircrafts are based in Ghedi and Piacenza and carry out recognition, defense, and attack missions for the 6th and 50th squadrons.
