Re: River Class (OPV) (RN)

@Donald

What do you not understand about "offshore patrol vessel"? Stop trying to turn a River into a regular surface warship. It's a patrol boat!
There is a P (patrol) on the side of their hulls, not a D (destroyer), or F (frigates, corvettes, sloops).

Stop it.

Re: Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers - News and Discussion

I would say this incident makes the case for a proper QE sized drydock on the south coast more urgent. What if the hull had been breached and Rosyth, Belfast and Toulon were all unavailable, or out of reach?
