    Rumours persist that RAF P-8 order may be increased from 9 to 14 in a few years, not holding my breath though.

    As to the F-35, dropping Paveways is nothing new but the sensor suite on the lightning is new, so it's more important to try that out and it would be more valuable in this scenario.

    I am hoping these operations will light a fire under the British to push for Brimstone on F35B and in turn US for JAGM for all F35.

    Just the threat alone will make the other powers expend resources to guard the ships even if they never capture one.

    Which countries are most at risk based on volume? I don't think it is the UK or the US.
