I say Chaps you do realise of course that this is the sort of levity that brings down governments,
As for the MOD it's run by politicans not the fighting men, the only way the fighting fighting men can get any equipment out of the MOD is to put the case for it in front of the people via the press = Afghan= APC's , personal protection (Armor) Helicopters , radios and Com's and small arm;s  We've some of the best trained and most highly experienced Fighting men in the world Pity about the 2nd rate out dated Equipment or lack of it they have to put up with...I often wonder if a certain government has a hold on ours because sense the 2nd WW it seems that we can never build our own weapons or develop the discovery's we had made because things like the fully movable tail on our rocket air craft wasn't allowed to Evan fly, never mind be the first aircraft to break the sound barrier, but had to be dismantled and ALL paper work and the bits shipped to the USA. The TSR2 speaks for its self, As dose the SR177 all scrapped even though several hundred orders orders were on the books.... its almost as if we are no longer allowed the follow up our own inventions .... Am I talking a load of rubbish, Maybe... My Kids and Grandchildren say I'm a grumpy old man so maybe I should leave well enough alone
