Royal Navy Aircraft Carriers

26 posts in this topic

What are your opinions on their and the Harrier's retirement?

I know that we will have two new carriers in ten years but that leaves a 10 year gap without carriers. If they are not needed in that ten years then what is the point in having two new carriers anyway?

Also, the Harrier aging and our lack of ability to create our own aircraft marks how weak this country is in the 21st century, am I right?

Discuss.

The ark royals up for sale, if i had the funds i would buy it, park it in docklands somewhere and turn it into the biggest baddest rave venue/brothel.

Pissed. That "Pot" would probably mean much shallower cuts, but they want to go to war for businesses and find that more important.

well, from a business angle it probly makes sense most of the time. but i disagree with most wars where a country isn't fending off an invasion

all this new military sh*t is meaningless and crap

my uncle in kandahar with an rpg can shoot down all helicopters and also fighter jets with soviet era anti air craft guns save maybe an f22

i was readin an article today which was sayin we are deceleratin as a species... we no longer have concorde sr 71s etc

we should be pourin money into technology instead of wastin it with the negros in africa or the indians or other poor f*cks

charity wil be humanitys downfall

@Gattsu

Eurofighter is technically already obsolete when you compare it to the F-22/F-35 which makes no sense, just like the Griphen and Rafael (sp).

LOL @ the cut backs yet always beg to go into wars smh.

We failed when the comet flopped and the USA bullied us to get rid of this jet because they were scared we would overtake them in technology:

TSR2, at the time it was the most advance aircraft in the early 50s, this techology wasn't seen till the F-111, Tornado, Harrier and Concord (look at any of these and you'll see the familiarity).

WHY? They basically took ages to incorporate the technology of this aircraft into the ones highlighted. Ever since we got bullied into not making it our airforce has been weak and aero engineering declined :(

are the new carrieres even going to be on par with the ones the us has ?

the current ones are pitiful compared against the us versions

I hope they have f 35 onboard aswell , what's the point of a out of date carrier m jets

They will be three times larger than our current/former carriers. 66k tons but they wont have as many aircraft. They will still be smaller than the Nimitz class (american carriers) and the new american carriers. Yes they do have the F-35s. They may even carry the Eurofighter if the company decide to produce naval versions.
