SARH to go

This is a rumour forum and some have heard a rumour that a announcement is imminent that SARH will either be delayed considerably or binned altogether.

Maybe they shouldn't have put such inflated bids in

That was too easy

But!! If SARH is binned on cost grounds, it would surely put to bed the fanciful notion that civsar is cheaper than mil, n'est ce pas?

How can you tell which is cheaper or indeed which is best, MOD dont know how much they pay for their SAR empire (which is beginning to crumble) so there cannot be a comparison.

As to which is best, there is no comparison each is a good as the other, we all provide the service do we not!!!!!!!!!

If there is any crumbling going on, it is as a direct result of having civilianisation forced upon a part of the Empire that did not need or want it. Privatisation of the military doesn't work.

Sorry Old Beefer - I should have been more specific, and I presume you are referring to DHFS - it doesn't work unless you can get all the guys who were doing the job in uniform to step sideways into the new 'civilian' structure (and in the case of DHFS, have a load of guys still in uniform as well). Thus the SAR engineering success has been patchy depending on how many good guys moved across - here at Chiv we were/are very lucky.

Nah, it just means the RAF will buy another 6 helicopters for 450 million and then de mod them to a simpler version! They'll then put them on a SAR unit where all the Kings horses and all the Kings men won't get them to work! It's the Humpty Dumpty Syndrome.

Anyway that's what they call value for money and being cost effective in the military!!! God it's great being a UK tax payer!
