"The ship’s company is excited and proud to be taking Ark Royal back to sea to commence our preparations to become the Royal Navy’s Strike Carrier and the UK’s Fleet Flagship."
Really? And besides the wardrobe, who has he been speaking too?

So are planes going to be put back on the carriers?

During the upgrade her hull was painted with new ‘intersleek’ paint – allowing her to cut through the seas more quickly - which will cut fuel costs and emissions by nine percent. It will also increase her top speed by two knots to 30 knots.
That paint's going to be popular for water ski's and pleasure craft etc. Assuming it's been given a stock number, I foresee a Management Control approaching; also at speed.

As WreckerL informed you, Soleil does way more than that and adds value to RR. Is that bernoulli's avatar you've nicked?

Are you saying that the WOs, SRs and JRs have a different opinion to that being credited to them by their CO?

I take it from that you are not ship's company which brings me back to the last question.

With Harriers. She'll be taking over from Illustrious next year.

Wrong Ark Royal Monty…


Current Ark Royal ≠ Strike Carrier

Previous Ark Royal = Strike Carrier




The deck park of very fast and sleek messengers of death is the giveaway. :wink:
