  • HISTORY ASPECTS:
  • During the Gulf War of 1991, the Tornado GR.1 "Debbie" of the 31 Squadron RAF played a pivotal role in "Operation Granby," the codename for the British contribution to the coalition forces' efforts to liberate Kuwait from Iraqi occupation. This powerful aircraft was designed as a versatile, all-weather, low-level strike aircraft capable of carrying a wide array of precision-guided munitions. The Tornado GR.1 "Debbie" was equipped with a state-of-the-art navigation and targeting system, enabling it to accurately deliver its payload to strategic targets while evading enemy defenses.
  • "Debbie" and its fellow Tornado GR.1s were deployed to Bahrain, a key base for the coalition forces during the Gulf War. From this strategic location, the Tornados launched numerous missions against enemy targets, including military installations, communication centers, and airfields deep within Iraq. The aircraft's ability to fly at low altitudes allowed it to evade enemy radar, and its precision bombing capabilities made it a vital asset in weakening Saddam Hussein's forces.
  • The Tornado GR.1 "Debbie" model, carefully crafted in a precise 1:72 scale, pays homage to the brave aircrews and ground personnel who served in "Operation Granby." With authentic markings and details, this model is a tribute to the aircraft that played a significant role in the liberation of Kuwait. It's a must-have for military history enthusiasts, collectors, and anyone who wants to commemorate the heroism and dedication of the personnel involved in this historic conflict. Display "Debbie" with pride, honoring its role in the Gulf War and the indomitable spirit of those who served in the 31 Squadron RAF during those critical times.
