Abstract : The Gulf Air War started for Royal Air Force Tornado GRl aircraft with the delivery of JP 233 weapons from low level at night. After sustaining unacceptable losses at low level, tactics changed to delivery of freefall 1000 lb bombs from medium level, at first by night and then by day. Accuracies, however, improved dramatically with the arrival in theatre of precision guided munitions.
