Collins class, sea sprite, ARH, I reckon the Greek government could have managed it better. We'll be lucky to have the capability to drop a can of baked beans to the SAS out of an R22.

The difference with those mentioned above is that in the end the RAN finished up with a very capable Diesel Electric submarine with the Collins Class. The others have not gained operational acceptance.

I think that the ADF and Australian Government have now realised the benefits of MOTS. Perfect examples are Super Hornet, C-17, and the MH-60R.

Interestingly, I heard from someone the other day that the Romeo is having trouble meeting expectations in relation to hot and heavy performance.

Anyone in the know?

The Romeo is a pig. Always was, always will be. I talked to a navy guy back in 2004 that had flown it.
What really bugs me about any government procurement is that the pollies mahe a purchase decision based on marketing when they should really just ask for the opinion of their pilots and mechanics.

The Romeo was always going to be a pig compared to the Bravo. Basically the same aircraft with more gear in it, hence it is heavier. However, it does do a different role.

Why did the Government purchase the Romeo? Because this time they did listen to the pilots and mechanics.
