MAD/SAD on P3C is employed at a max height of 1,000 Ft. The optimal height is 300 ft. An engine failure at that height, albeit one out of the four, can have a catastrophic effect.

A must read for those who want to know about the operation of a P3C:
http://www.subguru.com/DW_missions/P3_Operational_Manual.pdf

It is a manual of P3C operations and tactics even though it is a for gaming scenario.

I have skimmed through an actual operations manual(s) and the above makes it simpler and on layman's terms.

Another interesting read is 225 page document but this one is more technical

Have all 10 aircraft arrived in Pakistan?

And will it go to Brazil to overhaul its engines and airframes before going to Germany for avionics and sensor upgrades?

Saab's Swordfish maritime patrol aircraft was better option in my opinion,
we have to convert 2-3 Brazilian jetliner into swordfish MPA (because SAAB is battle proven platform), which also established ecosystem our arsenal saab2000.

Having two different plateform for same role be expensive and maintenance problem, just trust whatever PN make out of Leonardo should be equally good and in good numbers
