so whats the guts with regards the new IRDS. Did they get 5 new ones or just enough to cover frames when they go on board a ship. So the other matter is, if they have spent money, probably quite afew dollars in gettng these new turrets, then does that say they are not getting the I models, or was this purchase planned quite a while ago.
Sorry it was an older thread and you were filling in the details... I missed out on seeing the thread date - sorry. You are always buried in the media with information shared from all over the aviation world. One could say you were well read!
