Amidst all the loss of capability over the years thats one thing we forget, is there any martitime strike experience left in the RAF (or FAA for that matter)? It was build up over years with Buccaneer, then Tornado, but has been gone a very, very long time.
I don't think so, considering last Sea Eagle missiles were retired when? 20+ years ago? Because, as the topman said, why train to use a weapon that you have no plans to buy/operate?
But, rest assured, 6 Astutes will solve all and any possible surface targets, anywhere in the world, 367 days a year...
