1/144 Tornado IDS LRMTS Pods - Retrowings

1/144 Tornado IDS LRMTS Pods - Retrowings

Retrowings continues to release new 1/144 additions and conversions,
The pack includes : (3x)Three clear resin LMRTS pods to add to the Revell or Dragon 1/144 kits. (the idea being you keep the lens portion free of paint)

The RAF Tornado IDS aircraft are fitted with a Laser Range Finder and Marked Target Seeker (LRMTS). This consists of a laser that is used to measure the slant rang of a point on the ground relative to the aircraft; this information is used to calculate targeting.

The LRMTS sensor can be used to receive reflected laser energy from a third-party laser, allowing the crew to find targets marked by troops on the ground or other aircraft
