I'm amazed... only six years after the MARS team was formed, and they've come up with a tentative suggestion for one part of their brief... presumably these'll be to replace the Rovers? That just leaves the Leafs, the Argus and the old Forts to sort then...

The pace of developments from the IPT is largely constrained by those holding the purse strings. Look at how quickly FSC hulls have been hitting the water since the project started in 1998.

The MARS Fleet Tanker replaces Rovers and Leafs.

If they've got any sense, place orders for T45 7-8 with them, with an option on another 4 after that. Sorry, I realise I have committed a heresy and will now be taking myself outside to have a word with myself.

Seriously though, I'm now with a consultancy that does a lot of defence work and your frustration is shared by most of MOD. One day maybe they'll do the bleedin' obvious and everything will improve. Don't hold your breath though.
