The Nimrod MRA4 is a maritime patrol and attack aircraft that was developed by BAE Systems in 2004. The aircraft was designed to replace the Hawker Siddeley Nimrod MR2, improving the fleet’s operating life by a number of decades. With an engine configuration featuring Rolls-Royce BR710 turbofans, the flight range would effectively be doubled. The Nimrod MRA4 would have also featured a digital glass cockpit to make operation more efficient and easy, as well as reduce the number of needed crew members. In 2010, the Nimrod MRA4 was cancelled as a part of the Strategic Defense and Security Review.
With four Rolls-Royce BR710 turbofans, the BAE Systems Nimrod MRA4 would be capable of producing 15,500 pounds of force to travel at a maximum cruise speed of 316 knots. For its armament, the Nimrod MRA4 would be fitted with numerous air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles, depth charges, torpedoes, mines, and sonobuoys. The MRA4 could also be fitted with a multi-mode search radar, acoustic processor, electro-optical search and detection system, and an ESM system for its avionics. While the empty weight of the MRA4 is 114,000 lbs, it would be capable of operation at a maximum takeoff weight of 232,315 lbs.
