    P-8A Poseidon Official Rollout

    In more good news for ASW fans, the Boeing P8A Poseidon was officially rolled out yesterday.

    Because the P-3 Orion fleet is aging so fast, the Navy has chosen to get the P-8's out to the fleet as quickly as possible, and then expect to see them get fitted out for multiple missions, etc, etc.

    "The P-8A Poseidon program is an outstanding example of evolutionary acquisition at work. We have established a very solid baseline for initial operational capability, while concurrently making upgrade increments for future insertion as technology matures," said Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Aircraft Program Manager Capt. Mike Moran.
