I'm just hoping if they do build that it could possibly fill out the carriers ,if that's the y they decided to go aswell, I'm starting to think rightly or wrongly that the uk must start building it's own capabilities somewhat,or should I say as much as it can,the GCAP if realized would go somewhere ...
