Clipped wings just meant unbolting the wingtips, you could bolt high altitude extended ones back on iirc . There wasn't any thought of saving aluminium, there wasn't any particular shortage on the UK...

The F8 had MG-131s in the cowling instead of the 17s, though. With all the extra stores racks too I think it'd be an interesting change. I guess a Sturmbock would be a pretty good ground strafing...

I think you'll find the EE Canberra had a rather longer service life than the B-57 licensed copy btw - 1951-2006. I'd like a Hawker Hunter myself - introduced 1951 and still active as contracted...

Yes, there were A-8 bomber destroyer versions. I don't think they'd be all that nice to fly - the 108's ballistics aren't great and the Sturmbock versions were very heavy & not something you'd want...

Last few times I tried I've just fallen overboard on spawn, but admittedly I don't think I've tried since the last round of carrier fixes. Might have something to do with being in motion also.

The SHAR 2 radar was a properly developed AI radar - not sure if that had any A/G mode like the II+ ex-Hornet radar does, it certainly had look-down over land which was a long way in advance of the...

The UK ones had Sea Eagle many years ago & the German Navy ones carried AS-34, so you'd not be short of anti-ship no matter which IDS.
