Wish the actual ship was as good.
What are you on about? You know nothing, didn't you see it detect that 40 year old airframe, a whole 200m from the ship?!! :lol:

:p Whilst wrapped in cotton wool and nursed by the manufactures and boffins. Try it again when its 3 years from the last refit in the North Atlantic in a force 10 at 0200Z being maintained by Jack and Jenny :D :D :D

'The most advanced air defence ship ever built'?


Someone needs to slap the idiot who made that video and point him in the direction of a Ticonderoga Class guided missile Cruiser… 4 times the firepower and it can shoot down ballistic missiles unlike our new toy.

Nooooooooooooooooooo! surely a ship built 25 years ago, now paid off and on offer to become a museum could not be more effective than a T45. The yanks have got another 4 at least for disposal could we not just buy them. :oops: 8) :lol:

Unfortunately No, didn't I read somewhere that MOD had all their funds secreted in an Icelandic Bank .... ?? ;) :lol:

I still think it looks top-heavy and it's made out of lego bricks !!

Whatever happened to the Greyhounds of the Sea ? Still, it is one more to add to the ever shrinking fleet.

But type 45's are so good there's no need for that extra 6, not that i've been brainwashed.
I saw the daring on the river clyde when I visited my fella in glasgow. Hes on there at the minute and his fave feature is the ipod thingys in the better sleeping quaters. (I cant rember what they are called :oops: ) never mind

We have had 2 messdecks on T22s for years (3g, 3Ha), I can assure you if you want to read, do it in your pit.
