Wing Commander Andrew Brookes (RAF Rtd) Discusses Current Defence Issues

About this Podcast...

In this podcast, Wing Commander Andrew Brookes of the International Institute of Strategic Studies discusses the implications of the recently predicted U.K. defence cuts; the shortage of battlefield helicopters to support troops in Afghanistan and whether upgrades and retrofits is the solution or should the future medium helicopter programme be advanced; his opinion of the current negotiations on Tranche 3 of the Eurofighter Typhoon Programme; whether the U.K. MoD should proceed with the 2 Aircraft Carriers for the Royal Navy or would the money be better spent elsewhere; and which, if any, major U.K. defence programs may be cut.
