well you won’t be upset then if the Wildcat gets binned in the IR, will you?
Doesn’t even have any ability to look for a submarine, just drop its two torpedos ‘somewhere about....here’
why DOES the RN have a helicopter with almost zero ASW capabilities as an ASW helicopter, at twice the unit price and operating cost of proper ASW helicopter?
mind you, it can’t even do ASuW yet, that’s another thing against it.
just think, if it had bought SH-60’s, proper ASW/ASuW helos, deleting them like the over expensive one trick too small for any job Wildcats wouldn’t even be on the cards.
something tells me some people in dark blue have no deep knowledge about how to buy systems that aren’t useless vanity projects.
