I caught it from a PaxSims feed but it is interesting there seems to be a real drive to review WATU

It seemed to be a classic thing of the right thing at the right time - as to be a solution to a problem the Admiralty didn't even think of as being there until it literally hit them smack between the eyes

An an example of how to turn thongs around in an impossible time frame to the Lutheran GNAT threat it was amazing!
