Pompey News: "Good To Go! New Carrier Island Looks The Part"

Discussion in 'The Fleet' started by soleil, Jan 16, 2013.

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. I'm ******* sick of hearing the statistics on these carriers now. I couldn't give a shit how loud the foghorn is, how many double decker buses can fit into the hangar or how big the ******* bridge windows are.

    What the **** are we going to do with a 60000 tonne carrier with no aircraft?

    We shall train people to run along the flight deck flapping their arms and going VROOOOM! That should do it.

  4. Send it down south and tell the argies if they **** with us, next time we'll send it down armed.
     
  5. I wonder if anyone could answer this for me. Assuming the current plans don't change yet again, then the carriers will get ski jumps and (eventually) be flying F35B's. That much I know. I also understand that, had the build been without ski jumps and with F35C's other aircraft could have been part of the air group, such as E2 Hawkeye. Will any planes apart from STOVL be able to operate from the carriers? Please be nice, I'm not a journalist, just very interested.
     
  6. Not be long before the papers are telling us that the crew gets through x miles of snorkers, enough soup to fill x number of olympic swimming pools, x tons of spuds, complete with a picture of a deep fat fryer specialist with crossed egg whisk patch
     

  7. How many double decker buses can you get in the hanger??
     
  8. Stuff the number of aircraft.

    The important issue; is there suitable storage for Clicky Beds? If not then I can see trouble ahead. New bridgy island thing or not!:eek:ccasion9:
