Briefings (11/01/10) : Reconstruction, Indian C-17s, JSF

The Tories say they would expand the role of the Army in reconstruction if they win the next election. A stabilisation and reconstruction force would be created to perform work like repairing bridges and local infrastructure in places like Afghanistan. Funding could come from other departments like international development.

Boeing say India is interested in buying 10 C-17s, seems everyone wants them at the moment but they are pretty good after all. Flight International's DEW Line blog has a photo of the F-35B prototype engaging it's lift fan for the first time.

Images of the wreck of the Australian hospital ship Centaur have been seen for the first time, 60 years after it was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in WW2.
