RR does this have fixed leading edge extensions or movable slats?

STOL anyways, right?

Back briefly.

That gear looks beefed up - for rough field work?

Was it designed from the outset for STOL or modified?

Beffed-up? Yes, probably. Not intended for rough-field work, though

Yes, STOL as designed
