If the UK does want the P8, there is the argument that to lease at least initially is best as this means that the MOD cannot at least initially that all the systems are British or European, this model seems to have worked with the C17s.

Can the UK really justify having the required infrastructure to support under say a dozen aircraft, I would have thought not.
