They go on about flexible carriers, flexible 'reconfigurable' Frigates in the Gulf.
Airtankers aren't that flexible are they? They're not as flexible as Harriers.
Airtankers can't support ground troops or defend ships.
The plane less carriers will be modified with traps and catapults so aircraft from other countries can use them? Why can't we use Airtankers from elsewhere?
Reduce the Airtanker contract by half and retain some of the Harriers?
Airtankers strike me as one trick ponies.
'Platforms'? Airtankers aren't platforms.
