You have to wonder how delicate all these hi-tech systems are and how they would stand up to serious operational conditions. All too complicated by far.

If the wind over the bow was strong enough the Swordfish could also almost take off vertically.

Yes, and in fact, I've read stories of them actually 'hovering' over a flight deck in such conditions. It makes you wonder if they ever had to slow the ship down so that they could land!  ;)

Makes you wonder if companies like Dassault will eventually hit the wall as far as being able to produce a world-class fighter. Even the big boys like Lockheed, Boeing, etc.... need to team up to deal with the scale of these projects.
