Minor niggle but you can't cut something you don't have or haven't budgeted the money to buy.
But I'd go along with you on cutting the Navy's amphib ability to close to zero. That would save a shed load of current money and in my opinion, is a capability the UK can do without. Not sure if there's any other current capability I would say the same about. But that's for another thread.
Crucial clarirfication, I am heavily against cutting amphib.
I was simply saying it's what I think they might pick if they can't choose Challenger. Those are not ones I'd be okay with in the slightest.
