Discussing the case for disbanding the RAF

Good point by a text in, If you can afford to buy your kids a packet of crisps, you can afford to buy them a 3rd of a pint of milk. Up north I would sooner say half a pint (60 odd pence for a pint). Stop wasting money on crap and feed em proper stuff!

Got to be an Arrse record - OT completely de-railed by the 2nd comment on the thread! :biggrin:
It looks like we're discussing ways of saving the RAF by re-rolling them. So, back on thread... I'm waiting to hear of an ARRSEr calling or e-mailing in with a full on slagging of our blue polyester clad bretheren.
May I quote Bernard Law Montgomery, also know as 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein

"Air power is indivisible. If you split it up into compartments, you merely pull it to pieces and destroy its greatest asset, its flexibility. "

I submit that the gentleman in question has rather more revelance in his opinion than any talking head
RAF Chef = Soldier First
All the CRAB mummies are out in force to day
Never in the field of........................... Sh*t I can’t remember the words :):)
(Serious question) Could you describe the flexibility of the RAF in comparison to the other air assets in all 3 armed forces?


What can the RAF do that Teeny Weeny Airlines and the FAA can not ?

Actually, the RAF pretty much mops up wholesale.

Who would you trust with strategic Theatre or Tactical theatre AD ? The RN? The Army? Who should deal with Deep strike on assests well and truly behind the FEBA ? The RN ? The Army? Who handles Strategic AT? or Tactical AT ? Refueling ?
