It's a shame the fleet air arm don't operate proper helecopters like these :twisted:

The Marines were supposed to get WAH-64's to replace their Lynxes but Neue Arbiet cut the order.

That'll upset the Woos.
The pilots in the AAC can be NCOs as opposed to commissioned occifers in the RN.
:roll: But the FAA use to have rating pilots, when the going got tough :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:

Commissioned Loadies, does that mean they have lined slippers when on standby!!!!

If the crewman DE ever comes to fruition maybe there will be a Lt Cdr Senior Aircrewman replacing SPLOT!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

As for the AH64 on Ocean. Beats the living crap out of the old Wasp in strike mode.

Wasp and its 2 x AS12's vs Apaches full weapon fit!!!!!! The mind boggles. (Think I'd settle for the Apache)
