21. Sir Michael Shersby

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what major equipment upgrades the RAF will be receiving over the next two years. [18055]

Mr. Arbuthnot

Over the course of the next two years the RAF will take delivery of upgraded Tornado attack and fighter aircraft, new C-130J transport aircraft, additional Chinook helicopters and the advanced short-range air-to-air missile. These and other important programmes represent significant enhancements to the RAF's capabilities.
