Hi all, i'm army, and i've come straight accross from Arrse. I've always liked the navy and respect what you boys get up to etc etc. I always cringe when I hear about more ships getting mothballed, and being a traditionalist, like the idea of having the Navy as a senior sevice, and the 2nd largest in the world- this leads me to my question: (1) To what extent has the navy been downsized? (2) What carriers do we still have active? (3) Do you think that any downsizing has been detremental to the Navys operational capabilities (i.e wrong) or do you think its is needed, and a small modern elite fleet is the way forward? Cheers!
