Really shows the size of the new carriers, something we can all be proud of.
Hi Paul, Would like to share your joy but think these two carriers were ordered
by Gordon Brown purely to get votes for his labour constituency in Scotland
The ships have little scope of aircraft to carry as they cannot afford or have been
designed without steam catapults.
All the VTOL (Verticle Take Of And Landing) Harriers have been sold to the Yanks and the new American VTOL aircraft we are buying in return are grounded.
White Elephants spring to mind.
Such a shame we can't use the Typhoon jets on the carriers.
It seems defence procurement is just constant mistake after mistake.
Add to the the mistakes so far the other carrier when built will be moth balled
immediately and also there are only a few ports that can take either
vessel. Total Bloody Class
