Thanks Torsten. Good info. The pic I saw had it in regular German colors. Were they used for long?
I guess less than ten years.
They were modernized to NATO-standards quite expensively, but the Luftwaffe has the policy not to have more than 3 major warplanes.
So once the Typhoon was introduced, it was Typhoon, Tornado, F-4 and Mig-29. As there were propably 200 F-4 and only ~22 Mig-29, the Migs were sold for 1 € apiece to Poland.
And I believe the F-4 is entering the final days of service with the Luftwaffe.
There was idea that we get rid out of our old MiG-21's and get Luftwaffe F-4's (very cheaply) in the interim period until we buy proper new aircraft (even now there is proposal by Sweden for Grippens)...
