    And methinks there is more of this to come for the RN. I am guessing tomorrow will be a rough day when all the details are revealed. :(

    It was first commissioned 25 years ago, so not a complete shock.

  7. Re: Government Announces That HMS Ark Royal Is To Be Scrappe

    HMS Ocean is going to be scrapped as well. She is a bit old though, not the best built!!

    Such an iconic name this is a major morale blow :(

    There on about wasting money !1.The ark just finished a fefit last year or some time in the not too distant past .Yes i know she is 25 years .But after the refit it is up to date .Tell you its shite
     
  11. at this rate the rn will have a job stopping the vikings should they return to pillage and rape. :(
     
  12. Don't worry. After the Pongos return from fighting Afghan farmers equipped with RPGs, AK-47s, IEDs and donkeys, they should find the Vikings a doddle. Like you, I'm more concerned about being able to counter sophisticated future threats like professional navies, armies and air forces.
     
  13. but as we have given most countries the foreign aid to build said navies and air forces they will go easy on us right?
     
  14. :lol: :thumbright:

    (if it wasn't so serious )
     
  15. This is turning in to a game of Russian roulette.
