Engines, you are a proper gent and I will let sleeping dogs lie.

I suppose the differences over structures and standards are, to a degree, to be resolved by the formation of the MAA. We also have...

Boffin, I cannot fault your analysis; but I don't think that your conclusion is watertight.

Its not about capability, its affordability

If you re-read my post I don’t think you will see that I was questioning the need to defend the Task Group. I was merely asking how much of our resource (T45, dedicated AD aircraft) would be spent...

Organic Fixed Wing Air Defence for CVS?

Portsmouth MPs support RN shocker!

Perhaps Penny Mordaunt MP should ask her own party about SDSR decisions rather than wasting the MoD's time. What with Lord West and Mike Hancock MP in harness, it looks like the RN could form their...

Fod,
Perhaps you should make more FOI requests about the RAF, it would make you a more informed commentator.

Welcome to WEBF

WEBF,
no I do not, but nor should someone criticise a 6 week SAR Det down south as if it was the only thing they did. My point about HERRICK ratios was to dismiss it as a valid argument about...
