I hope the main thrust of the article is true!

But I can't believe the amount of factual errors in this article... and I think that the Sun's graphics person got a bit carried away on the size of the ship in the picture...
 
Factual errors/ iffy graphics - it's the Sun FFS, what do you expect from a comic. Anyway hope there is a grain of truth in this. Re. Rosyth - my understanding has always been that if they are built then Rosyth has an important role due to the availability of very large dry docks.

The timing seems remarkable and it is in the FORCES favourite newspaper(yeah yeah yeah).
Basically it's SPIN by the time people realise it's bull it's months or years down the line.

If the Sun's picture of the new ship is accurate (and being the Sun, it should be!!), then the new carrier will be a very expensive way of protecting the upper Forth towns such as Alloa, Grangemouth etc. Cos it will never fit under the bridge if it's built in Rosyth!! :oops:

No no , it'll be OK, if its built anything like the LPD's, they'll leave a whole deck off it!!

1. Where we going to grow the crew then?
2. Protected by the biggest white elephant since the Bristol (Daring)
3. Will be based in Marchwood as Pompy wil be a collection of seafront apartements by then.
4. If built by the standards of the ongoing T45 program its aircraft will be the Swordfish and air defence will consist of a couple of chefs with surface to air potatoes.
