Not sure I understand the logic behind terminating this platform.
This is a platform having some international success and there is little hope to add new products to the St. Louis plant as F-15/Harrier work is also dying down. If the requirements exist why is this happening? We seem to be able to spend gobs of money on anything other than real military needs...
Maybe I'm missing something. Navair folks, is the SH really not well received in the fleet?
