I must own up to my well known weakness for cool looking weapons that didn't actually come into service rather than the ones that were cool enough to serve. TSR2 looked cool. But Tornado was cool and served for close on 40 years.
Sadly it's why there are always more people wanting to be Napoleonic soldiers than allies in reenactments. And no I am not going to mention THE War save to say the wonder weapon fetish also applies to myriad Super Yamatos when we all know what happened to the ones that were built.
So there it is.
