Tornado - Looking for Help and Views

Just wanted to see what people thought of the Tornado in BMS 4.33. I’ve just started looking at it. As a Brit obviously it’s very exciting to see a (fairly) well progressed model of this aircraft in game, and it’s one of my favourite aircraft. I am most interested in the Gr4 and the ADV.
It’s clear the flight model has a way to go (fuel consumption rates, flight performance and general flight model for starters). But I was hoping for:
Views on the overall platforms flight model (I’m most interested in the Gr4 and ADV). Is it up to the level where it could be flown reasonably in multi player as a squadron aircraft (as some do with the F16 and FA18c) - or is it just not ready yet?
How to use alarm. This was a fairly well respected weapon system I believe. But in game it appears to act very strangely, possibly even inconsistently. I’ve compared this with my success rate fireing HARM without the HTS/HAD and I am getting about 80% success with harm vs 15-20% with Alarm vs the same targets (SA2/3).
The alarm was apparently viewed as a more effective SEAD weapon than HARM (I don’t know if that relates to its pk or the ability to suppress threats after the fireing platform had left owing to its staying aloft on a parachute).
Am I doing something wrong or is it just not modeled right yet? Obviously it doesn’t work on the parachute - I assume that will never be modeled owing to the complexity involved but if I am using it right it’s pk needs a major overhaul.
- Is there any word that the Tornado will get up to the same quality as the FA18c in future upgrades/4.34 - or is it set in stone now?
Thanks for your time guys,

At least in term of flight model, we will not have a accurate Tornado one before a while….
First problem is the seeping wings, in fact the FM is totally different with 25, 45 or 67 deg swept, so we in need to have 3 totally different set of CL, CD, Cy…
Second one, pilot can choose, for each of the 3 sweep angles between CRUISE WING and MVR WING (2 different flaps-slats law), so this lead us to 6 totally different set of CL, CD, Cy…
As of today, OFM or AFM allows only 1 set of CL, CD, Cy… (plus variation with flaps)
Without this large kernel rework, BMS will not be able to provide accurate FM for Tornado or F-14
