I can't see how picking E7 over an E3 upgrade is a bad idea, but with our ability to save pennies now and cost pounds in the future, who knows! Also depends how much UK specific kit is going on.

Its a staged upgrade, some complete already, and the talk of partnerships suggests we will end up with the same build, but see above.....
Anyway, there are more important considerations. 8 Sqns named the shacks after Magic Roundabout characters and the Sentry after the 7 Dwarfs, what for the E7? Wedgetail is an Australian bird of prey, is that suitable? Is the galley up to RAF standards?
Priorities and all.
