    For the aircraft ground crew the quick answer is yes as they will be covering the same times.
    For depot level maintenance the level of techies is determined by the number of aircraft.

    Throw in some leave for training and you have 6. This is why I think a minimum of 24 pilots would be needed to have a 2+2 ship QRA set-up.

    They are not scrapping the LAV's, they are for sale as they do not get used.
    If anyone wants to make ANY offer I am sure the NZ DoD would bite your arm off.

    How much are they looking for to get rid of the NZLAS's?

    It was interesting that Argentina went for new Stryker vehicles rather than snap the NZLAVs especially given their financial situation.

    Surprised they went with the old model and not the newer MR6 variant.
    Does this mean they are likely to offer even more NZLAVs for disposal than the 30 already on offer?

    Just for my knowledge but I understood that Deadweight tonnage (DWT) was the amount of weight a vessel could carry. So empty weight + DWT would equal displacement, is this correct?

    I am confused, on the website and in the MRAV product brochure the weights are given as "displacement". In the individual product sheets it is given as DWT.
