Got to have somewhere to stick the "For Sale" sign
No steam launcher means we have to compromise on aircraft that can fly off it. It's a little reminiscent of the bright idea to have a concrete canon in the Eurofighter to save a few quid, and then have it cost a lot more when the idea is shown to be cretinous.
I wonder what it will wind up costing to retrofit the carriers later on, or will it be impossible?
That'll be the gun camera, right?
I'll resist the joke temptation, look for EMALS or EMCAT. It will be possible to convert later on but lets see how the F-35B get on eh?
Thanks. Am I right in thinking the Typhoon could fly off it with a launch system?
Not without a lot of modification.
Yeah, mine was a cheap shot...
Wardroom pianos could be made to fly with the right launch mechanism, and be about as effective.
Fair, I was having a bad spell
Indeed, I ought to...
Let him without sin cast the first stone. I had my steampunk reply lined up. We forget that people do have genuine questions.
All covered in another thread.
