Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Personally, as I would think it absolutely stupid to let the program die now that the Maiden Flight finaly took place, I believe this is just a pressure measure in the current battle (bad luck for EADS to fall right into the crisis with their delays), of cause 20 Billions *more* than planned (20.000.000.000 Euros) is a lot for just 60 a/c, but in the end I think governments will succumb and raise taxes rather.
