RAF Expects Cuts: The Royal Air Force may need to cut force structure to counter budget shortfalls. British Ministry of Defence officials tell Jane's Defence Weekly that problems stem from funds diverted to air elements supporting operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Jane's reports that sources say proposed cuts include two squadrons of Tornado GR4 strike aircraft and delays in delivery of new Eurofighter Typhoons.
