      Ok, almost all of the current fleet needs to be replaced in the coming years, but the question is -

      Which are needed most urgently ?

        I went with the Alouette/Dauphin helicopter replacement. Search and Rescue saves lives every year, whilst fighters may only save lives in dire emergency.

          I'm slightly surprised at the results - I thought there would have been more votes for the Medium-Lift Helicopters.

            priorities...........

            silver , there are more than a few juveniles on this and other defence forces boards , perhaps this would explain the high number of votes for the fighter jets .
            makes the only sense to me .

              Yeah, but I have to admit to being a convert from fighter jets to Medium lift

              1 Naval Squadron - Refitted and upgraded Dauphin/ or Lynx?
              2 SAR Squadrons - S-91
              3 Medium Lift squadron - ????
              Meh.

                1. Naval Squadron - Won't exist, as most likely the Dauphin/Alouette/Gazelle will be replaced by the EC135 or Twin Squirrel.
                2. SAR Squadron - S92
                3. Medium Lift - S92 also.

                        the stupidity of this government ( berties gang ) is beyond belief .
                        they should have , could have leased any of a number of airbus / boeing
                        jets , for the six month E.U.presidency and went ahead with the much needed requirement , for SAR medium - lifts , wheather S-92 or NH-90 . the fact that people are still dying , seems to matter little with this gang.
                        and this situation cannot be over emphasized !!!

                          Well said ranger !

                          A leased jet along with the Gulfstream would be more than adequate for our EU presidency term.
                          Bertie has become so arrogant, after been voted in for a second term, he thinks he deserves a new (bigger) "Air Corps One"
