http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article4837746.ece My own personal view is one of relief, with us pulling out before the big costs start to hit. However, the fact that they're talking about converting the Eurofighter for carrier operations is a f*****g joke issedoff: . FFS just buy a load of Rafale M's, they're pretty dam good, reasonably priced and ready to go now(or what would be a short build time compared to a new development time and costs). It would also mean we get proper carriers with cats and would mean we can get plenty of training from the frogs using their carrier while ours is being built(or argued about). Being honest, the whole JSF thing has turned into a fiasco, the B version is going to be nothing more than a pricey pipe dream.
