Replacement for USN EP-3/P-3SPA

Good Evening all, With the recent (final ?) transits through the UK of regular and ' interesting ' P3/EP3 Orion would anyone be able to advise if we are likely to see a similar utilisation of some of the P8 fleet for similar duties in future ? I have found this link noting a possible change in scope...

Re: UK Orders Wedgetails

wonders of MoD strategic planning and once again relying on the continued availability of neighbour's assets ... Just like when the USN, USMC and RAAF have relied on our VC10’s, TriStars and A330 more or less every week since 1991. How do Portugal, Belguim, Greece, Denmark, Norway, Czech Rep, Polan...

Re: UK Orders Wedgetails

Problem is the cost of the boom would have to bourne by the MOD wholly. Also with civilian use it's difficult to remove a boom when not in military use. Any boom equipped aircraft would need to be one of the “core” fleet, ie the ones not made available commercially. As for the FI, there are other w...

Re: UK Orders Wedgetails

After Haddon-Cave, I can't see MOD authorising any modifications to the fuel systems in E7/P8/RC135 unless it has OEM manufacturer backing and certification. I'm sure Boeing would happily take UK money to do so, but it wouldn't be cheap and is therefore unlikely. I've often wondered how we'd get P8...

Re: UK Orders Wedgetails

RAF Tanker support and receiver compatibility was mentioned when the RAF RC135s arrived. Wrong tanker for this receiver. Voyagers would not be boom-modified and (contractural) operating restrictions exist on which tankers can be used. Same issue with the P8's and presumably Wedgetail when they arriv...
