What can I say, Zaphod, I'm just repeating what I read. As I said, I do have hope.
Naval Air: The P-8 Stumbles

February 5, 2014: In late 2013 the U.S. P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine and maritime patrol aircraft entered service, four years after its first flight
in 2009. The bad news is the manufacturer is confronted with complaints that the new electronics developed for the P-8A are not working well alone or
with each other. The surface search radar and surveillance turret (a high end vidcam with powerful zoom) were particularly troubled, with many of
their automatic and cooperative features not working properly. These problems were noted more than a year before the P-8A entered service. There are
now 16 P-8s flying, six of them prototypes. Production continues, for India as well as the U.S. One was delivered to India in May 2013 and the Indians
are quite upset over the sensor problems.
