I know all about systems integration from my previous life on the railways.  I was involved with Systems Review for Railtrack's West Coast Route Modernisation project - running Pendelino tilting trains from London to Manchester.


You and Kit should get together  ;)


It's not that simple as numerous factors influence development time, one of the highest
impact being engineering changes caused by the customer changing requirements, such
as adding features, sometimes scope creep as to role, etc.


The more I read about modern military design requirements this seems to be a far to common, causing a lot of the problems and delay.
Decals my @r$e!

Ahah, so it's YOUR fault!  ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Will it even have a pilot?
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

Probably a bloke in a shed flying a joystick and watching monitors.
