  1. Have I got this one right or am I being distracted by Gordan Yellow just now bottling out of a General Election?

    I'm too dumb to figure this out myself, but is the above a good example of "joined up government" and will the Paras be allowed to operate as trained or will the crack team of Nu Labour PC lawyers be backing them up at every stage and will they be properly equipped for task or will there be short term budget deficiencies channeling funds to remfs instead of guys taking the pain (unless Yellow Gordie calls it all off at the last minute)? And when can we stop being polite about our NATO allies who hide when it gets dark and don't have to be resupplied with ammunition?

    More happy days ahead pals!!
     
  2. I will have to lay of the beer I am seeing double

    So they're sending the eurofighter to the stan in the air-to-ground role then? Thats great news! Considering the jets not confgured for that roll yet and isnt due until tranch 4 or the older ones are retrofitted!
     
  7. its got some air to ground capability i.e. more than harrier but not the whole package

    A lot of the weapons currently arent cleared for use,a lot of existing airframes are not ground attack capable (not required in tranch 1 & 2 i believe) & crews not trained in that role.

  10. Probably the ones we had to ask the Dutch(i think) for!!!
     
  11. Danish, we bought them and then did them up. Not sure why the Danish weren't using them, too much money to make up to date?
