Something went wrong. Try reloading.

We're all sufficiently loaded.

Who is defending our shores while these gunboats are away?

RosyLovelady - 02 May 2021 13:32:28 (#8 of 49)

Don't panic!

bossab2 - 02 May 2021 13:32:38 (#9 of 49)

Indeed.

Must be time for a Cod War.

Does it have an engine that can operate in the tropics?

TommyDGNR8 - 02 May 2021 15:44:09 (#11 of 49)

Oh man, if it broke down...

browserbutton - 02 May 2021 15:45:12 (#12 of 49)

"Send for BoatyMcBoatface!"

Snarlygog - 02 May 2021 15:46:55 (#13 of 49)

Will it be taking the Suez Canal or show the flag down the coast of Africa?

carterbrandon - 02 May 2021 23:32:21 (#14 of 49)

Oh man, if it broke down...

With the newest members of our fleet, it's more of a when than an if.

#13

The battlegroup is going to the Med. A few ships will detach to the Black Sea in a "Fuck You Russia" deployment.

A “carrier strike group” sailing without organic AEW sounds more than a tad bit pretentious.

Snarlygog - 03 May 2021 08:22:33 (#17 of 49)

Didn't Cameron cut those and we had to have the French to cover for us? Wasn't that when the Russians sent a sub down the channel as a fuck you?

chacqueschirac - 03 May 2021 08:31:05 (#18 of 49)

That was ASW, not AEW.

Organic carrier AEW was abolished by the Blair regime when it was phased out together with the Sea Harrier- with the justification that the British would never ever again operate without the Yanks.

TheValkyrie - 03 May 2021 09:22:16 (#19 of 49)

What's 'organic carrier AEW'? A quick google suggests the helicopters have AEW capability.

RosyLovelady - 03 May 2021 09:25:34 (#20 of 49)

Sustainable organic bombs must be the next big thing.
