Defence Management: "Three RFA Ships 'Could Be Cut'"

Discussion in 'RFA' started by soleil, Oct 21, 2010.

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:

  1. It says RFA wasn't mentioned in the cuts? How come we were told on of the BAY Class LPD's was going and that was it.

    Makes no sense.

    The RFA was mentioned;

    page 21 of SDSR
    Looks as if the RFA is being scaled to meet the Royal Navy’s requirements. Fewer war canoes = less support required. However the utility of the RFA is being demonstrated elsewhere as Fort Victoria is being deployed on anti piracy duties complete with helo(s) and Bootnecks. Not just for fuel and sausages then.
