Didn't Spot the typo, bloody auto correct.

Should have been 'Surface' fleet.

Anyway a reduction in surface fleet, while aspiring to a bigger fleet shows poor historic planning.

What do we have presently?

10 ish deployable ships, each with its own unique set of issues.

Shocking.

Checkout Porthminster beach webcam NOW.
Can't make out the name or pennant number, but a T23 is anchored just off St Ives. I think it's Westminster?

A real success for the complex weapons teams working on it. Wonder if the surface to surface capability is also applicable to the land environment?
