Re: Is anyone else thinking "What an utter PoS" ?
What exactly does such a thing need in the way of specialized ground support equipment?
Watchkeeper needs a whole battalion of experts and professionals. Here's just some of the exciting career opportunities open:
Official Excusers and Liars: "The programme is successful, and will soon be operational"
Cash-handlers: A billion quid in cash is very heavy, somebody has to move it.
Offical Losers: As in losing those additonal 5 Watchkeepers. Now, where did they go?
Trainers: To show the RAF and Army exactly how to fly a Watchkeeper into the sea.
Official Askers: "Excuse me, I'm from MoD. We've lost a small aircraft and I wondered if you'd seen it?"
Scraper-uppers: The equivalent of the clean up team in the Men In Black films.
