At 250MM pounds/yr till 2035, we're getting close to 4B pounds just for the development, even before factoring in the hard stuff like the software.
Seems a 100MM pound fighter in the making. How many can HMG afford?

Does anybody in the real world seriously think this will complete as a sole U.K. project? (If at all?)

It’s already a multinational programme with three full partners (UK, Sweden, Italy) with Japan collaborating on next generation high power radar and EW systems.

And we already have a thread…..
