Re: RN anti-ship missiles

Totally agree, its a complete disgrace that we have a Government that would rather purchase a new Yacht than anti ship missiles for our surface fleet. All down to choices at the end of the day.

I don't buy this FCF rubbish. Just an excuse for a cut. I know the US Marines are looking at smaller and more numerous assault units but ours small in the first place.

Re: RN anti-ship missiles

Without any air or ship launched anti ship missiles, will a UK CSBG rely too much on the presence of an SSN? How easy is it for the Commander of the CSBG to tell the SSN commander that an enemy fleet is approaching?
