The Royal Navy is thinking of sellings its Wildcats

Should this come to pass, the PN had better get in on the action and acquire at least some of these at what will be bargain prices.

Alternatively, should the pull of new construction be too strong, then it is an opportunity to acquire systems that go into these aircraft that the PN could not otherwise afford and have left out i.e. ECM, ESM, ASW systems and put these on new construction.

At the very least . . . we should also look into getting some of these Wildcats as parts hulks.

But absolutely, we shouldn't pass up the opportunity at getting bargain-basement systems. Especially since we only have two Wildcats.
