In the article it says one will be based East of Suez in the Pacific , which sounds good to me , you'll have to make allowances for me , im just an innocent perce

I don't think much information regarding which flag they will sail under has been broadcast. The RFA also have a manpower issue like the Navy do, so I do wonder if this could be a hybrid crew - although that will inevitably leave 1 side at a loss. Due to the likely price of them and the fact that it has been inferred that these will be bought and converted, RFA could be more likely as we have more experience with converted merchant shipping (although the Navy had OCEAN).


TL;DR: no one knows so we'll just wait and find out!!
