Why on earth do they want to put ‘the Supid’ (whatever that is) in a salt-water solution!

I’m sure this would make great bomb truck. Is there a revolving StormShadow mechanism in there somewhere?

@Opinion 3 – quite a lengthy discussion about that under one of the MPA threads not so long ago…all kinds of bright ideas for modular kit for a somewhat larger than planned fleet of these aircraft…

So, 2 nr. refueling drogues, then. Are they plumbed in as standard? And what is the 4th crewman in the seat with the large display below the main cockpit? Probably a stoopid question that one!

@Dangerous Dave.

Every Grizzly (I’ll not call it Atlas :( ) is plumbed s standard as a tanker…the RAF will not be using theirs as such…

@BannerMan: I see, still at least it means that we can use them as tankers when the FSTA PFI breaks down in acrimony and court cases . . .

Oh, and is that 4th crew position for the load master?
