More Doubts on the Carriers

Discussion in 'Diamond Lil's' started by phil1972, Mar 1, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The current government's plans to build 2 replacement carriers (CVF) to replace the 3 existing (CVS) are further put in doubt as the development spend assumes that a further carrier to a similar specification would be procured by France.

    However, with a Presidential Election imminent in France the French carrier is being used as a political football by the Socialist front runner.

    As if the prospect of us getting these necessary assets was not in enough trouble on this side of the Channel!
     
  2. Interesting post, but is it in the right forum??
     
  3. I'm so glad we're in bed with the French for our new carriers after all the Horizon project went so swimmingly.
