you can do ASW from 20,000 ft! Just ask the P-8 design team.

Funny, as a former P-3 bubbah, the first thing I noticed before reading anything was how high he was chucking the torp!

have a better chance of taking on the attacking yellow-nosed Bf109s closing in on him. It's the Airfix Dogfight Double artwork:
