V22 v .........

It was my understanding that the RN was looking at procuring the V22 for the QE carrier, some form of intra- theatre lift capability. However, with the link showing other users (apologies it was in the MoS) which Service will be flying the ac now???

Won't be. It's above the AUM that we are allowed to fly.

It might have been a long time ago, imposed by the RAF but Lynx rubbished that falicy then AH destroyed it. I'm hoping with an Army boss @JHC the ground work is already done.

Don't we have to find uses for lots of Chinooks?

JHC (Land) can barely afford to run its current aviation assets, what would make way to pay for it?
