Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  2. Yes, instead they just reduce the number of ships but increase the committments. Cheers Dr Reid.
     
  3. Apparently the vessel was so big they only had 10' clearance at the sides and the top. They shortened the chains on one side to pull her round as she hit the water.

    That was after they dredged the south side of the Clyde for the first time in ages.

    I am told BAe are not using that yard again for 45 launches, but then that all might be nonsense!
     
  4. Oi Monkey,

    whit dae ye ken aboot launches an waater an dredgin an rivers an stuff

    Yuv never been oan a boat in yer puff.
     
  5. I think she looks striking in the 'flesh' - she'll be a great looking ship, far better than I expected from the computer generated pictures.
     
  6. A much needed air defence destroyer; even if she does weigh in as an AA cruiser. Not many hulls in the water, though. forget WIGS, SAGS and ARMILLA; and the anti piracy, anti drug patrols.
