We now cannot afford to fight those sorts of wars. But everything for options for change to SDSR has put the UK armed forces onto a footing were all our rotary wing fleet should be capable of operating from ships. And I would sugest that's going to be the picture for a long time to come.

And totally agree about Puma accident rate and lack of refurbishment when money was available. The South Africans have been operating upgraded pumas for years so why was it left till now to upgrade ours? Might have prevented the accidents and deaths!
