Re: British aircraft carriers
SADLY TRUE! a year ago there was ONE destroyer and 4-5 frigates which could be deployed, and that destroyer was still is limited to the amount of electric generation possible in "warm" waters!
Just read several articles in the British media about the lack of funding to allow the carriers to be operationally effective.
1. Lack of funding for additional aircraft (F-35s).
2. Cost overrun for AWAC.
3. Lack of funding to build adequate number of escorts.
4. Lack of funding for an adequate fleet train.
Are these problems real or is it just hysteria from the British media?
