(kinokopack) 5th August 2018
Day 2 of HMS Albions stay at Harumi Wharf, Tokyo, with Japanese public visiting the ship.


(Shochiku) 5th August 2018
This movie is created by Matsutsu and is up only from Shochiku. It is the state of Tokyo Harumi wharf of '18/8/5. I was watching the information that HMS ALBION's release was delayed, so I stopped the first episode and arrived after chopping. It is already a long line. To the acquaintance, listen to the release time as planned, relieved! The UK landing ship was the first time, everything I saw was fresh. Urashi was also very happy to see the bridge slowly.

The Telegraph claims that HMS Albion was confronted by a Chinese frigate and two helicopters near the Paracel Islands - which China has claimed - before reaching Vietnam last week.

HMS Albion warned over South China Sea 'provocation'
China has accused the UK of "provocative actions", after a British warship sailed close to the disputed Paracel islands in the South China Sea.

The Chinese told HMS Albion to leave in "an aggressive manner", taking position "irresponsibly close" to the ship, the BBC's Jonathan Beale has been told.

The Royal Navy said it was conducting a freedom of navigation exercise "in full compliance with international law".

Imagine with QE or POW providing air cover. Potent.

Potentially extremely potent. I would like to see how PWLS is going to be set up in the LPH role and what capacity is left, if any, for the F35's. One or two FLSS vessels accompanying the Albions and Bay's could really help with the Lilly padding if PWLS is further offshore.

A bit more background directly from RN. https://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/news-and-l ... oup-baltic
