Originally intended as a maritime patrol aircraft principally for anti-submarine warfare, the BaE Systems Nimrod is a long-range four-jet aircraft used for a variety of missions. The R variant is for signals intelligence. Aging airframes, however, are leading Britain to replace the aircraft, presumably with a product from Airbus or Boeing.
