Her Majesty's Government whether they intend to make cuts to the RAF Sentinel R1 fleet before 2021; and what assessment they have made of the impact of any such cuts upon the UK’s surveillance and terrain mapping ability, particularly within the context of the UK’s NATO commitments.

The original out of service date for the Sentinel fleet has been extended from 2018 to 2021. The UK will continue to provide NATO with high-end capability where required to by the Alliance. We remain actively engaged in understanding and responding to NATO's evolving future capability requirements, incorporating these into national plans.
