Hence the electro-mechanical palletised weapons handling systems on QEC carriers. That is far enough until the system is fully proven.

Does anyone know if that approach is being looked at in regard to the FSS? Are they going to have a sort of mechanised warehouse onboard?

Don't know where to put this news because I don't see any thread about RFA in general, so I'll put it here, mods can move it somewhere else:

Fortune favors brave sir, said Carrot cheerfully.
What's her position about heavily armed, well prepared and overmanned armies?
Oh, noone's ever heard of Fortune favoring them, sir.
According to General Tacticus, it's because they favor themselves…

It was bound to happen sooner rather than later, and the Government were stupid not to try to treat the personnel of the RFA as a special case at least compared to other Government employees. They could have made quite a strong argument to do so.
