Sir/Madam
Now that the UK has bought the F35b i was wondering if the MOD would be procuring the Gun pod for these aircraft ? I am sure it is better to fire fifty or a hundred 20mm shells at some targets, than to fire a £100.000 missile..i know you can't fire the gun at everything but i am sure it would be better in some situations .. .just a thought
Yours faithfully,

Andrew Blackburn
