The P8 is designed to support a blue water NAVY in a blue water mission


Well, Australia has a blue water NAVY in a blue water mission....
we already have C-130J's and C-17's and AEW&C's and currently have 19 P3-C's.... so the P-8's replace the Orions....

The P-8A is designed for surface and subsurface surveillance. Just like the P-3 currently in use by the Australians. No one is getting shafted.

This thread resides in the Aircraft Projects forum, which is in the Science and Technology section of ATS.

No conspiracy needed.

Not off topic.
