RAF to pull out of Leuchars as RAF Lossiemouth stays
Defence Secretary Liam Fox said Scotland's defence footprint would be strengthened
Leuchars in Fife has lost its fight to retain its RAF base, with Lossiemouth in Moray becoming Scotland's only such site.
RAF Leuchars will become an army base, with its Typhoons leaving for Lossiemouth in 2013 and the army starting to move in later.
Campaigners had been battling to keep both bases open.
Troops will also be stationed at Kinloss in Moray, which closed as an air base as part of MoD cuts.
