Tricky. The F35C is the best looking variant - does that carry any weight? :)

Is it a totally crazy non-starter to put the probe into an F35A?

Typhoon - £70-90k/hour a few years back.

Are these Helos 100% made in France/Germany with zero UK content?

Is this bad news for Agusta Westland, or just a minor blip?

You dismiss the Norway option (being in the EEC/EFTA), but you seem to imply we can still secure the same benefits of free trade. This currently costs Norway money proportional to their GDP...
