      It's the only one they have. When it came through the channel a tugboat had escorted it all the way.

      No, its the Admiral Kuznetsov.

      According to Wiki, the Kiev was decomissioned in 1993 and is now a luxury hotel in China.

      Like all carriers the QE will rely on the frigates and destroyers in the carrier group to protect it. If our previous carriers are anything to go by the armourment on our carriers is very light.

      The Lockheed-Martin F-35 Lightning II

      First announced in 2001, the US-led F-35 programme has ballooned into the most expensive weapons project in history. Its £1 trillion cost has been condemned by President Trump as “out of control”. A report last week found that the estimated cost of the programme had risen by £21 billion in the past year.

      Britain, which has pledged to spend more than £12 billion on the new jets and aircraft carriers by 2021, is to buy 138 F-35s. The first tranche of 48 will be the B variant — the same type that the US had to ground last month because of software glitches. The first squadron will arrive at RAF Marham next August and will be deployed on HMS Queen Elizabeth, the first of two new carriers, from 2020 ....The F-35 is still in development, but the number of faults identified by independent experts has worried many. “It is unbelievably abnormal to have this level of problems in every aspect,” Pierre Sprey, a US aviation expert, said. “Manoeuvrability is appallingly bad. It has terrific problems trying to fly fast at low altitude. It overheats and when you detect the overheating you have to open the bomb bay doors to cool the missiles that are inside. The logistic computers are a horrible mess and it is crippling the ability to be able to move the aeroplanes from one airfield to another.”

      Worrying ..
      That Pierre Sprey is an expert of nothing, he had never had a good word to say about any aircraft. Even argues with test pilots who fly the aircraft.

      They're not great. But you don't need to be particularly great to get into the top 6. The only decent teams are in the top 4.

      Somewhere in the North Atlantic just completed her first fuel replenishment on the go from RFA Tidespring, on her own Tidespring is an enormous vessel so this picture shows the enormity of QE.
