New Royal Navy aircraft carriers [OT]
- There was some brief discussion on the list about the current state of
the Royal Navy and its shipbuilding program a while ago. Announced today:
"The MOD today signed contracts with industry to build the two future
aircraft carriers. The contracts, worth in the region of £3 billion,
were signed with the newly-formed UK maritime Joint Venture, BVT
Surface Fleet, and the Aircraft Carrier Alliance onboard HMS Ark
Royal, one of the Royal Navy's existing aircraft carriers and
currently the Fleet Flagship."
So it seems this is indeed going to happen...
