Maybe they should have said "part of" but here's the Gov.uk report, just to lower your self-righteous indignation to a sensible level :rolleyes:

They are being disingenuous. Part of a Fleet?
One ship?
You are attempting to defend the indefensible.
We have no navy to speak of. Stop pretending that we have.

No pretence and think about what you've said. Of course one ship is part of a fleet if there's more than one ship in it.

What else could it be!!!!

Note to editor​

  • As a representation of the ‘Indo-Pacific tilt’ in the UK’s foreign policy, the Carrier Strike Group made its maiden deployment in May 2021 and has successfully conducted operations and engagements in the Mediterranean and the Indo-Pacific. The Strike group will travel over 26,000 nautical miles from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea, from the Gulf of Aden to the Arabian Sea, and from the Indian Ocean to the Philippine Sea, engaging with 40 countries. This ambitious deployment will end in December 2021.
  • Besides HMS Kent, The Strike Group is led by the aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth and is comprised of Type 45 destroyers HMS Defender and HMS Diamond, Type 23 anti-submarine frigates HMS Richmond, and tanker and storage ships Fort Victoria and RFA Tidespring.
  • The UK Carrier Strike Group (CSG21) demonstrates UK leadership in NATO and European security and is the embodiment of NATO’s 2030 global vision.
  • The UK has the world’s fifth largest defence budget – highest in Europe and second highest in NATO. It is also the second largest defence exporter in the world.

Do us Yanks a favor: stop culturally appropriating honorable nicknames. People think you’re American, and the amount of stupidity you post makes us look bad…until they figure out you’re just a poser ****.

It's a pity you lot from the large colony don't understand the word 'winker' as you could have called him a winker instead! :D


Yep, thought it might do that! ETA remove the 'a' and substitute an 'i' .
