Leaves me confused...
the first one out, after 18 mths of upgrades

So did we actually have one (or more?) on Shader, flying and doing stuff (on Ops)?

18 months is an awful long time for upgrades

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…

Just saying if only a few resources are used are part of the upgrade programme it would take linger. I know how long it took to get a Canberra PR9 through a major overhaul as how many resources were in place to carry it out. Compared to say the Jaguar GR3 programme it took far longer.
