There’s a difference between ‘no regard to the article’ (your words) and ‘reasonable inferences from the article’.

Equally there’s a difference between ‘random guesses’ and ‘musings of someone who...

I ‘get it’...but doing ones utmost to ensure there are no civilians in the area whilst employing Air Launched Cruise Missiles from (I assume) medium altitude - seems both the right thing to do and of...

ROC Man.

The ‘tradition’ of carrying underwear on the supersonic run is 100% cast iron fact. On my course one fellow did get the wrong end of the stick and wore them - he was quite the spectacle...

Spot on BV. And quite aside from AI an autonomous system can be wonderfully dumb - in a positive sense. No AI whatsoever required for the following:

I wonder if they’ll reveal the secrets to Radar 2 - where it is, how much has it cost, when it will be fitted fleet wide, how does it compare to APG-79 and 81...for example?

Seems to me that one...

How would the presence of P-8s at Prestwick stop a Russian submarine following a Trident boat? I can understand how they (P-8s) might let you know a Russian was out and about...

I know that we all know this...but the Task Group’s task is not ASW. ASW is an enabler that allows the Task Group to go about the task in hand. The same is true of DCA.

Whilst any such change is obviously laudable - I did hear AM Turner say that the entirety of the RAF annual fuel bill amounted to about that of 2 cross channel ferries. So a good step but probably...

I agree that the aircraft needs to be demonstrably safe to operate, just as everyone else probably (hopefully) agrees it needs to be operated safely.

I honestly hate myself for saying this - but I now believe, after decades of cynicism, that synthetic is the answer. Pilots do not need hours - they need skills.

I witnessed a completely British Blue-on-Blue in 2008. Brit JTAC, Brit Fixed Wing providing the laser spot, Brit AH firing the lethal ordnance. Just added for balance.
