Didn't notice any winch!!!!!

Scouse, your age is showing through!!!:toothy3:

The winch is housed inside the Stbd sliding cabin door. It is rotated out of the door and then raised up via a rotating wheel. It has the look of a Wx hoist when it is in position.

Yes Scouse, 61 strands of Collindo cable!!! You have to remember the winch/hoist was made to operated by orficers so inevitably it incurred an amount of added technical stuff even to the winch mount cos they got GCSE things and us ratings didn't. (sic)

Don't worry not everyone can pass for AET.. doesn't mean you're thick. No need to be so jealous pal.

It can't be that hard if pissy panted red arse shitspitters can manage it.

A ******* monkey can maintain aircraft, just look at 814.

lol now I am showing my age!!!! Thought they were 2 Mk 44 Torpedos


Ha ha ha, you are Scouse me old mate!!!! However they do the same thing. Sink sludge-machines!!! Stingray is a Mk44 with brains. If it thinks the Obs has fugged up the settings and finds a target it will over ride and seek and destroy!!!!!! Did the trials with it at AUTEC!!!!

Hope their Stingray acquisition doesnt sink to the bottom, like our acquisition mark 44 when the Pilot fugged up and it didn't shed it's lead shot load. The fisheads in the sea boat, spent a few hours out but to no avail
