Were you alarmed at the latest headlines?? scrap the two A/Cs, scrap Trident replacement/ scrap future Astute S/Ms, no further work on a Joint Strike Fighter, The new Daring class are inadeqate for the type of wars we will fight in future. Think on, look back in history, when have these halfwits ever got the forecast right, since the end of WW2 every conflict we have been involved in ranging from Korea through to Afgan via Oman , Falklands Cold War and Kenya plus countless others have crept up and bit us on the bum. This countrys defence capability has been woefully inadeqate time after time. Let us now enter a new phase of forward thinking, how can we best achieve any given task with limited resources and overworked manpower. Not easy you might reply. But alas not as difficult as you might at first think. Consider some of the following options: Highly armed surface ship -nuclear powered modified Daring- with 2 vtol capacity plus helos: modified Astute class S/Ms to carry 4 Trident with 12 warheads each plus special forces capability to embark whilst at sea dived plus Tomohawk. Build enough of these and you need very little else, let us not be taken short. Once you lose your at sea flight and nuclear weapon expertise it will never be recovered. Lobby your MP.
