Historically, that must mean it's just about time to cancel the whole
project. Oh wait, first they need to spend several hundred million
pounds each to upgrade all the a/c, then cancel the project so they can
use the airframes for fire fighting/battle damage repair trainers.

Unless they're going to be upgrading the R1 Sigint variant then yes it is.
Largely a completely new aircraft though. Only the fuselage tube remains
from the previous MR2 version.
