TsrJoe why do we need a long range strike bomber type...oh yip i forgot... Iraq, Afganistan, etc. etc.  :blink:

what a pos. the Tornado fulfilled the requirement adequately for the role, having said that i do admit i cant see the UK. getting a proper replacement for that one anytime soon, F.35 anybody?

Good grief. You'd think the person who submitted that petition would have at least spellchecked it first... :banghead:

As to replacing Tornado, perhaps BAE can do something with Typhoon to turn it into a decent striker. Bigger wing, internal weapons bay, etc.

I think someone was building something like that, a Fullback-ised Typhoon.  Don't remember seeing it finished.

Ah, found it!  It was you Pyro!,21257.0/highlight,strike+typhoon.html
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.


A Canberra should do the job nicely I'd have thought..........  ;D
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

Something similar might actually be useful - the USAF are still getting excellent use out of their Buffs. IIRC, one of the proposals for FOAS was to have a big, slow aircraft (Hercules, A400M or similar) launching swarms of cruise missiles. Perhaps we'll see a Nimrod B.5 at some point! :wacko:

Mossie: Yep. ;D
