If you have an interest in the TSR-2 program this is great overview of the program

Its also a good example the chronicals something that continues to this day how the military write “requirements” to ensure they get what they first thought off. Not necessarily what is required to do the job.

Projects like TSR2, only become a waste of money if we don't see it through or the project design is flawed. If it wasn't for Ronnie R, the Rockwell B1 would have been canned forever, and I'm convinced the resurrection of what would become the Lancer, convinced Maggie to look at restarting TSR2. As to the Lancer, an aircraft who's role had been questioned leading to cancellation, has become a superb asset, and will serve until it's replaced in 2030 something, by the B21.
