The problem at heart is that the people in charge of our armed forces are always from the fighting arms. They are fighter pilots, infantry & cavalry officers and GD naval officers. When faced with a budget restriction logistics is at the bottom of their priorities. Do you buy 20 JSFs or 15 plus enough spares to keep them running for their lifetime? We all know which way the fighter jocks will fall. It's the reason why each defence budget cut has seen yet another "white elephant" logistics IT project fall by the wayside and that there is a several billion pound blackhole into which the kit needed to fight our petty little wars is disappearing into.
