Where in the UK do mountains meet the water deep enough to launch an aircraft carrier?
Englands very own Gib, Portland!!!Well that’s the thing, I don’t know, I’m just trying to find out the easy way.
Ideally the facility should be built in England, for the greatest redundancy given possible succession from other parts of the kingdom, is there really no where?
All of these are a tad different from even considering hollowing out a mountain in the UK for ship-building. Fot a start, it would mean one yard got all the jobs, unless, in fairness, every ship-builed hollwed out their own mountain.Why did America build their NORAD operations facility into a mountain, and still maintain it today?
Why do the Iranians build nuclear research facilities underground?
Why did the Taliban dig themselves into mountains?
Why has the Swiss government been burrowing into their mountains for so many years?
Mountains are a safe haven from nuclear attack, and I should imagine hypersonic attack. It’s quite simple, asking questions to get the ball rolling is known as research, and where a mountain meets water the vessels can come and go.
Please don't slam the door when you leave, I've a massive headache!I don’t think I’ll pursue this forum any further. I thank janner for the most constructive replies.
It’s no wonder the public are indifferent to funding promises for H.M. Forces.
Anyone late on a Saturday night who manages to mention NORAD, Thunderbirds, and the very excellent film Guns of Navarone all in a single paragraph, deserves a funny.Mmmm "risible" (probably a first outing for that word at RR) "...describes something that is laughable or amusing, like seeing dozens of clowns emerge from a very tiny car..." for a more complete definition please add -
" ...falling over themselves like lame lemmings hastening to engage in erudite debate on today's burning issue -
Shipbuilding in caves, caverns & potholes - Profundity or Bollocks?
Flash to bang reaction time at OP was only 6 Minutes for our distinguished correspondent at Orca. BZ Wits...
... you cunning old stirrer :WINK:
Pinewood Studio's might like the cave idea though! Remember the volcano in "You Only Live Twice?"If you think the public would be happy funding digging out a mountain to build a shipyard than have a google of the response HS2 or the Irish bridge has got.
