They had some pic's on there of an old WW2 tanker used as a target for the modern array of skimmer weaponry
US and UK etc joint fleet exercise.
The Tanker was hardly touched ---the yanks had to sink it with scuttling charges!!
Very nice one (in fact brills) only one thing you mentioned one of the two things that sun dodgers just love and one of them was not daylight.Geoff_Wessex said:
Thanks. am actually working in north lock now (enough said) and enjoying it. The old navy has not died yet! Believe me mention a female at sea on one of theirs and they go ape.Geoff_Wessex said:Yes, best not to be rude - after all, this IS the Submariners' Forum!

Oddly enough, yes. It's a good thing Bush Jr wasn't around then, and Blair: they'd probably have nuked it instead! :wink:higthepig said:Probably slightly off thread, but does anyone remember the Torrey Canyon? The Navy couldnt sink it, the RAF couldnt sink it,and it wasnt even firing back.
