My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.

I believe it about being loud with those contra-rotating turboprops.

Yes it is, but why is a Maverick being equipped on a plane that appears to be mostly for ASW?

The P-1 can be used in the ASW/ASuW role, same as our maritime patrol aircraft. I think Mavericks would be used against smaller surface ships that you might not want to waste a Harpoon on. Probably also handy in high traffic areas when you're worried about hitting civvies.
