Defence Industrial Strategy - Far too broad but not deep enough

Think Defence links to a piece which tries to explain the various blocks, trances, CPs and SRPs.
Have a read, its frighteningly confusing.

And as always, it seems pointlessly complex.

There were four different teams writing the software.
Well, you all know the production woes.

Again I'm forced to ask, instead of pretending we build armoured vehicles, warships and combat aircraft, wouldnt it make more sense to, you know, actually make one or two of them?

If the UK had gone it alone with Eurofighter, made its production a the priority defence, we would have had the aircraft in operation a decade ago, and would be pushing through the final stages, conformal tanks, aesa, thrust vectoring, full weapons fit ect now.
