    MSRs are 50s tech. And currently they are trying to solve the corrosion problems posed by that kind of substance. Not holding my breath.

    I must admit that I am coming around to the Vard design, but an honest competition should be held. Enforcer 10k might also be an option for instance.

    Belview port or across the river from t. And yes the need for dredging is pretty clear. As for logistical requirements - not so sure. How much of a port does London have?

    My personal favourite to develop would be Waterford really. Much better shelter than Rosslare and has a motorway. I'd relieve Dublin and Cork of most port duties and use the land to develop the inner...

    There's a lot of freeboard there. Again, this ship is a lot bigger than the OPVs. But I do fear that crew accommodation is probably cramped. The 240 temporaries are liable to be bunk accommodation,...

    AEW is a very advanced game. I'd buy Swordfish on Saab 2000 or similar. Give us a C4ISTAR platform that can be deployed for peacekeeping missions and support of EU. Don't buy the C295.
