    • Michael Bryant: And what do they sell: air tankers, transport planes, ASW/anti-ship strike planes, and patrol planes?

    • Michael Bryant: They don't sell fighter jets (LMT) and electronic warfare (RTN). But yes, air tankers and large planes can cost more than fighters.

    • Energysystems: Unmanned(huge under BHO), Apache attack helos, F-15, FA/EG 18, missiles, anti-aircraft/sub. Much much more than just tankers/transport.

    • Energysystems: BA has 25K employees working in their military aircraft division. If it falls anywhere near 50 I'll be stepping in big into BA.
