UK set to buy 3 RC-135s

The UK is set to replace it's Nimrod R1 Elint aircraft with 3 RC-135 Rivet Joints, the UK has decided to do this instead of modifying development Nimrod MRA4s. The 3 Rivet Joints are currently stored airframes in the US and will be made operational by L-3 Communications. A contract will be signed in weeks, the Nimrod R1s will remain in service until they can be replaced by the Rivet Joints though the similar MR2s are being retired within months.
