I think we can forgive them this particular oversight, seeing as they haven't been in existence since 1945.

It's arguable that the reason the fallout from Shoreham was so severe...

P-8 doesnt have winglets, but has racked-back wingtips instead. They both do the same job, but winglets would be prone to iceing at some of the non-airliner altitudes the P-8 operates at, and while...

Seems your supposition is still being mocked all these years later.

So why not MI6 then, or the CIA or the FSB? Why always straight to Mossad? It's a rhetorical question.

On the contrary, I think it has been quite remarkable how few nations have sought 'the bomb' over the years.

They have the AH-64E for that role, and can put troops in the back of this unlike another dedicated attack helicopter. I like the concept, and the 20 mm Gatling gun is a doozy.
