awful lot of work to rewire the aircraft for them crappy Firestreaks. Methink the MOD would keep them "as built" with the (equally crappy!) 9B 'winders. Save the British citizenry some tax dollars   er, pounds

 

also saves screwing around with loadouts and data ini (weght differences and all).

 

like the NM skin!

Since when has saving taxpayer's money ever been on the MOD agenda?

To be fair the Firestreak wasnt actually that bad (or am I thinking Redtop?). Seem to remember te test/eval group gettin 100% reliability when they fired within parameters... also had a much bigger warhead than the winder if I remember right.

I have an RAF starfighter mod of my own though I placed the missiles on the mid-span pylons, thought they would look  bit oversized at the tips so never actually tried them there, actualy don't look as out of proportion as I though they would.
