    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: Defence Minister Strauss: Question: What do you think of Britain's surface-to-surface missile, "Bluewater"?



    Strauss: We think that it meets with military requirements.... (ends) same military mission in the tactical field.



    Question: You have also seen our SC-1 vertical take-off. What do you think of it?



    Strauss: It is a wonderful experimental aircraft, and I think that British aircraft constructors are most advanced in that field.



    Question: Do you think there is a place in NATO for that aircraft?



    Strauss: I don't think for the SC because that is an experimental aircraft......I have seen this morning the P11-27 Hawker (photo of the Hawker)....I think in a very short time that could be the basic aircraft required by NATO, and I would like to say desired by all nations with our military- geographic conditions.
