Just wondering if there has been any further clarification since the SDSR on the planned P-8A requirement ? Its come to light that the Shadow force will be expanded from 5 airframes to 8 by converting one of the Super King Air trainers already in service and by purchasing an extra pair of new built aircraft. In the same Flight article it mentions that the Sentinel fleet may drop from 5 to 4 airframes at the end of next year although that may change as they also say the P-8 buy won't have provision for the AAS system for overland surveillance initially. An interesting choice of words which makes me wonder if additional P-8's may be acquired with the AAS capability to directly replace Sentinel that can then also complement the MPA force as opposed to compromise it ? Just wondered it anybody else had seen anything with additional information on the procurement, as like most things the devil is in the detail and I guess we won't get much until a deal is signed for the actual purchase. https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/extended-raf-shadow-fleet-to-include-trainer-convers-419937/
