The Rolls-Royce RB199 engine powers the U.K. Ministry of Defence’s fleet of Tornado aircraft.

Rolls-Royce signed a £690 million service contract with the U.K. Ministry of Defence (MOD) to support the Royal Air Force (RAF) fleet of Tornado aircraft. Under the terms of the contract, which runs until 2025, Rolls-Royce will provide the RAF with a guaranteed level of availability for its RB199 engines, spares, and ground support equipment. The new agreement includes additional support elements, such as the development of engine health monitoring techniques designed to improve operational capability. Rolls-Royce has been contracted to support the RAF’s RB199 engine fleet since December 2005.
