If I were a gambling man etc- I would WAGER that the FINAL DECISION to buy the very poor Tiger and even poorer NH 90 was made by the Dept of Foreign Affairs (DFAT) and not any military person.

DFAT would have been MUCH more interested in redressing a balance of trade problem than giving the boys (and girls) on the frontline the best possible weapons.
