  3. Think that the Astute is a cracking design and hope that we will continue to produce such first class gear.

    The same comments were made about the T45 destroyers. The technology of both Astute and the T45 is said to be mind blowing.

    Now lets keep it and develop it and sell selected bits of it, instead of giving it away.

    No silly. It should come as a lovely surprise. Like when someone turns up to your dinner party with a really expensive bottle of vintage champagne?

  8. My take on the cat / trap issue and the F35B is that the undercart issues are well in the process of being solved. No chance of Rafale IMHO - too many issues over sovereignty, and at the heart of it is the fact that we like the French, but we don't necessarily trust them that much ;-)

    I thought the sea caravan containing jet fighters towed behind the Astute was still top secret?
