Re: Royal Navy Task Force

Have a heart -- it took a lot of effort to build that one ship. Heaven only knows where the sourced the components from since the shipbuilding industry in the UK has been run down to the point where its effectively non-existent. Its either going to be "only about 20% home made" or alternatively "home-made in the North Korean sense". Just marvel that it floats.

They could just be decoys like the models used in WW2. Personally, I'd like to see an array of Swordfish on the deck, somehow it seems a fitting complement to the 'send in a gunboat' mindset the Gareth fellow seems to possess.
