Whilst I would concede that the C130 won't be able to carry FRES it's worth pointing out that FRES is about as far off as my elevation to Air Rank. It's safe to say that the A400M is a good few years off too. Realistically, a mini fleet buy of US Js to cover the coming woes of the next few years plus a few more slots on the C17 production line would see us right.

Then we can sit back and wait for the A400, Moon Base Alpha, FRES and Tracy Island to be delivered in a few years time......
