Its too early to work out to be honest. All i'm saying is, as a small bankrupt island off Europe what do we need. Can the Typhoon defend our skies and deter a ship born invasion etc?

I actually think its good news for defence spending as more new pictures of Chinese Stealth aircraft are published etc,but unless it has a 20,000 mile range or Ireland buys it, we should have nothing to be worried about. I still think there is underlying post Imperial thinking in this country when it comes to defence and its strategic goals, but you have to cut your cloth.

Yamagata ken...i call it a helicopter carrier, and jolly useful it will be considering all those diesel electric subs that are awash in the region.
