Not easy, not easy at all....................

Problem is when you fly a very capable long endurance platform for decades your whole outlook has been built around it - even if you don't realise it and finding a "replacement" becomes very tough - think B-52.........

It takes something special to suddenly change , for example, to a 737, to do the job.

Memory says there was a proposal for a MR Tu204 variant at one point - could see that replacing IL38, but suspect the replacement for a Bear will be another Bear

BEagle,

Good point, I should have said "they" and a very small 'they' at that...

Wasn't the Foxtrot variant well regarded back in the day.
