star this property answer text <p>Initial support for the RAF P-8A fleet is covered as part of the Foreign Military Sale case for procurement of these aircraft, enabling us to utilise US experience and leverage economies of scale from the existing US Navy support arrangements as we develop our own UK-based support.</p><p>Work is currently under way to define the requirements for the UK support solution, but I am withholding details of financial estimates as disclosing this information would prejudice our commercial interests.</p><p>The UK has ordered nine P-8A maritime patrol aircraft and the current planning assumption is that they will have an expected service life of 25 years.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Whilst the Ministry of Defence's default approach is for open procurement, which eases interoperability with our international partners, there are a few cases where our objectives are served by specific sector approaches, which help either to deliver value-for-money, operational advantage or national freedom of action. One such sector is the high-grade cryptography required to protect our secure military communications; this creates a sovereign requirement to control cryptographic hardware production, deployment and support.</p><p>In addition, we continue to take a broader risk-based approach to the provision of military capability, which includes balancing the accessibility of widely used commercial technology, general military technology and bespoke sovereign technology. Consequently, the acquisition strategies for military capabilities are kept under review by the MOD's delivery agencies to ensure that they remain fit for purpose. To safeguard national security, it would not be appropriate to identify publicly further details of the aspects of capabilities we might regard as critical to be maintained in the UK and how we assure them.</p>
