No, I didn't. And I wouldn't believe it anyway.
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 is also the first working day after 29 March
... so that all companies that have made contingency plans and moved sizeable parts of their operations will be told "JUST KIDDING"

Has anything been heard regarding the interim replacement for the Harpoon for the Royal Navy? We could do with something being brought into service sooner rather than latter surely?

Given the current Gulf situation when does Sea Venom become operational with Wildcats?

Still think RBS 15 Mk-3 would be a good stop gap as this could give both T-45 and T-31 a anti ship and land attack capability out to 300km

HAs anyone seen any info on a possible ship launched version of the Sea Venom, like we did for the Sea Skua?
