Of course you do etudiant, bad takes are your thing. It's utter tosh that the Serbs were the victims, just as it's utter tosh that the Russians are the victims in Ukraine today. The Serbs were the...

I'd disagree. The UK element of the H175M would be full up production for the UK and exports on the only H175M line in the world. For the AW149, it's unclear how the Yeovil plan fits in with the...
