Agree about MPs not being idiots. There can't be many employed people who can decide about increases in their own payment package and retirement plans.

Re: Does the RAF F35 have a gun?

Hello,
Agent K.. It might help this thread if you could ask your F-35B pilot whether he has flown / similated performance with a gun and what his opinion is relating to having a gun or being without one.
Something like that ;)
