I though they built 2 new ones and then cancelled the planes?

Ordered 2 new carriers (one will be mothballed because it's cheaper than cancelling it) then changed the carrier spec to include a steam catapult so that the RAF standard version (F35A) can operate from them.

Now if we'd have kept those perfectly good V/STOL aircraft we had........... oh sorry thats right, we sold them to the yanks who are going to break them for spares, makes my blood boil at the wastage, and don't get me started on the Nimrods at Woodford, what a sad sight that was :(

If I had time I'd explain why most of the problems in the military are the fault of the RA bloody F but I've got very limited time so it'll have to wait

Well I was in the RAF and also worked on navy ships ( and subs ) - most of the problems were down to the MOD which covers all.
