>>40564791Say it with me.>Anglosphere supremacy for another 100 years.
>>40564791>HMS Tony Hawk
>>40564815Anglosphere won't even exist in the next 20 years you stupid retard. Look at the fucking demographics.
>>40564791Not exactly news. This was announced more than a year ago.
big if true
>>40564815goddamn you're an idiot
>>40564818>HMS Tony Blair
>>40564791Anyone have the >ramps picture?You know the one I'm talking about.
>>40564791>loaded with F35 jetsThe bongs only have 9 F-35B's as of 10 January>https://www.forces.net/news/what-you-need-know-about-f-35bNot even a full wing. Hardly "loaded".
>>40564847>>40565573>continentals are SEETHING

>>40564812t. chinksorry you dont have any friends Chang. Not even the eternal vatnik wants to be on your side. maybe you shouldnt have been a shitty neighbor.fuck you chang i want to see all chinks dead
>>40567332why so mad Wang?
>>40565915We have 9 in the UK with another 7 or so in the US and our simulators are up and running and training pilots. More are being delivered every few months but the bulk of our order will arrive after Block 4 - which will integrate meteor, brimstone, internal ASRAAM and SPEAR, currently we're just using Pave way, external ASRAAM and AMRAAM C7
>>40565915Thats enough to take out the entire chink airforce twice
>>40568427The PLAN South Sea Fleet is enough to take out whole Britain and turn every buck-teethed drunk limey into mince.
>>40564791What do they hope to achieve with this? Piss of China aka the country which is actively destroying/colonizing the US Canada and Australia at the moment?
>>40568509>Piss of China aka the country which is actively destroying/colonizing the US Canada and Australia at the moment?Real intimidating
>>40568436You gotta admit thoughThose Brits are good at naming ships.
>>40568439"1v1 me bro"
>>40568530>HMS Duncan>HMS Talent>HMS Iron Duke>HMS Dragon>HMS DiamondSounds like edgy teenage faggots larping at a D&D table.
>>40568436That graphic leaves an aircraft carrier, logistical and support ships in the RN/RFA.Whilst the PLAN does.>>40568509To demonstrate being able to deploy at length, in addition to the economical and political interests the UK has in the region.
>>40568413>20 years without an aircraft "carrier"That's a damn long time to goThat's like almost a generationI can only imagine how much knowledge have been lost in all this time.
>>40568530I just want them to bring back another HMS WarspiteGod that's a cool name
>>40568530>No Hood >No Repulse >No Warspite >No Rodney >No Revenge >Vengeance and Victorious are subs The current royal navy fucking sucks at naming
>>40568439If they could sail here without malfunctioning or sinking
>>40568572>HMS Albion>HMS Bulwark>HMS Monmouth>HMS VanguardThey more than make up for the edgelord names.
>>40564791The UK should retake Hong Kong.
>>40568617Luckily there was only 3 year between HMS Illustrious and HMS QE
>>40568617The RN has worked along side to preserve pilot and deck crew skills by 'seedcorning' personnel into the US and French carriers.Only last year I think the USS George W Bush stopped over by the UK to allow UK flag officers to practise CSG command skills.So whilst there's gaps, the RN isn't going to zero to carrier hero.
>>4056841336 deployable aircraft and 48 carrier slots. I can see how that happened though not long ago there was going to be one aircaft carrier.
Careful not to post anything transphobic here, otherwise the British visitors could end up in jail
>>40564791Fuck is the situation this bad now?
>>40568881I wish.we could get rid of Chinese posters and eurotrash with copy pasta
>>40568617>I can only imagine how much knowledge have been lost in all this time.Not a lot considering the US, UK, Aus, NZ and Canada all share intel (honourable mentions : israel, japan, singapore - also heard the netherlands were sweet with exchanging info with 5 eyes)
>>40568737>The UK should retake Hong Kong.LOL
>>40568439>The PLAN South Sea Fleet is enough to take out whole BritainI think I heard Argentina say something like that once, oh and china in the 1800's.I think they consider china a threat to Singapore and Hong Kong. Japan must be worried they have insignificant military to cope with China too.
>>40568737>>40568910People consider this a joke, but I bet that is exactly what the UK is considering if China won't stop fucking with the financial system of HK.
>>40568910The UK should engage in a preemptive strike coordinated with the US to knock out every power facility in China, and should then retake Hong Kong.

>>40568617I wouldn't worry about it, they crosstrain with USN all the fucking time.
>>40568922Retake with what you delusional retard? Hong Kong going to be turned into a graveyard and it'll be Britain's most humiliating defeat since losing Singapore
>>40568922I'd prefer a negotiation to protect Hong Kong, but if worse comes to worse, I think China will make the first move, other than the spratley move.
>>40568950>Retake with what you delusional retard?Opium.
>>40568950>Britain's most humiliating defeat since losing SingaporeBritain had no chance because the Krauts were making advances.
>>40568918I'm sure the UK would love to retake HK, the question is can they do it? And the answer to that question is simple: no, they can't.>>40568922LOL. Ignoring the laughingstock that is the UK, the US has been folding against China since the Korean war, when China was 100 times weaker and America 100 times stronger than today.Take your meds, seriously.
>>40568967I mean, really. We're just in a cycle of retribution at this point. China is flooding the West with opioids in retribution for us using opium to fuck with them. They have been exploiting racial tensions for 50+ years and are in part responsible for the stagnation of Africa via shit like what happened with Rhodesia. They set up the entire continent to be an area of future conquest and are now cashing that check.
>>40568984>are in part responsible for the stagnation of Africa via shit like what happened with Rhodesia?
>>40568980>I'm sure the UK would love to retake HKI think you misunderstand, I imagine it's corporations and banks using their string to force the UK to take back control. We are talking FUCKTONS of money at risk of China's sillyness.
>>40568984>China is flooding the West with opioidsRogue traders in both Afganistan and Laos/Thailand/Vietnam is still more likely than China doing that. Remember: that region is not that happy with china, even communist Vietnam has issues with them.
>>40569078Oh and I forgot about the west, which grows a significant amount on it's own soil for medicinal purposes, but likely is exploited for other purposes.
>>40564791maybe they should send some type 45s too afterall chinese will probably be scared when they see them breaking down
>>40568918>but I bet that is exactly what the UK is considering if China won't stop fucking with the financial system of HK.The UK is considering no such thing.Any notion that they RN will be steaming off to go fight the PLA belongs in setup-to-fail fantasy scenarios.
>>40564791UK still living in the past.. do they really want to fuck with China, UK aint US
>>40564791>>40565941>>40568413>>40568436BU-BUT ACCORDING TO /k/ EXPERT. ENGLISH CARRIER SHIP ARE SHIT, RUBBISH, USELESS AS FUCK BECAUSE IT GOT RAMP UNLIKE COOL USEFUL BEST AMERICAN CARRIER SHIP.
>>40564815US foreign policy is a fuckup after fuckup and China already owns 2/3 of Africa.
>>40568512Did china steal the engine designs for that from the B-52? I've never seen so much black smoke from a jet fighter engine before.
>>40568704You and me both. But at least we got Dreadnought to look forward to.
>>40568436The Royal Navy is moving to having multiple crews for certain ships, meaning they will be at sea almost constantly between maintenance periods.
>>40568914>Argentina Thatcher had to have a huge sook to the French PM threatening a nuclear escalation if the frogs didn't hand over all the Exocet's (the missile being used to btfo the Brits) schematics/encryption codes/etc. she should consider herself lucky that Mitterrand was such a commie pussy - ANY other French leader in history (from Charlemagne to Macron) would've called that bluff. >1800's I don't think anyone ever pretended that, but feel free to live in the past if it's all you Brits have.
>>40569507China is coughing up dosh for fhe rights to mine in Africa. If an African country said no, they can’t really do much. Of course why would they? African countries are dirt poor.
>>40569554Exhaust is of perfectly normal comrade.
Guys, as a Canadian, i'll admit that I regularly shitpost and derail royal navy threads because seeing those toothless bongs squeal with impotent outrage is funny.... but this thread is just sad. All the China worshiping drivel needs to go.Can we have one RN thread in which the discussion is constructive and in good faith? I actually want to hear expert autist opinions and punditry on the RN fleet, it's operations and its leadership
>>40564791PSA: Queen Liz systems run on Windows XP
>>40570451most hardwired military computers run on XP/2000.
>>40570411No, you get exactly what you asked for by shitting up RN threads for years. People like yourself have made it so you can't talk about capabilities only tooth rot, muslims and knives.
>>40570461>>40570451A heavily modified version of XP mind you. Don't spread misinfo and imply that the Brits are using the same Virus ridden XP that we were using back in 2005
>>40570468I'm sincerely remorseful for it, but in my defense, i was merely trolling for amusement. There was no hostility towards Brits.With vatniks and chicoms however, it's just pure, concentrated anglophobic bile
>>40570469I hope to god it can still run Bonzi Buddy
>>40570469I wouldn't call it heavily modified.Just that features are turned off and there's reasonable way of outside data entering the infrastructure.
>>40570483one day we will get a milfag to install bonzi buddy on a radar computer
>>40570496****there's no reasonable
>>40570370>she should consider herself lucky that Mitterrand was such a commie pussy - ANY other French leader in history (from Charlemagne to Macron) would've called that bluff.>ANY other French leader in history (from Charlemagne to Macron) would've called that bluff.Fucking this.
>>40570451no, they run on a custom BAE OS that the whole royal navy is adopting.
>>40570370your whole post is a Chinese whisper. You're posting something you heard before and now re-posting without any individual thought. Firstly there were no "codes" thats not how missiles work. Secondly the French were fairly unhelpful, MI6 had to buy the missiles that were on the market and had to sabotage the missile that were elsewhere. Finally, What makes you think the UK needed to ask France for any details about the missile when the UK itself had it in service and was privy to the technical specifications. One gets the feeling you're trying to blow smoke up your arse.
>>40570468Oi, you got a loicense for that.
>>40564791More cannon fodder.Can't wait to see the "pride" of the Royal Navy at the bottom of the drink.
>>40570370>Thatcher had to have a huge sook to the French PM threatening a nuclear escalation if the frogs didn't hand over all the Exocet's (the missile being used to btfo the Brits) schematics/encryption codes/etc.Complete fucking nonsense

>>40571539Shut the fuck up Chang
>>40568509China would cut its navy apart trying to trek through the Atlantic. It's time those glorified opium farmers learn heir place.
>>40570947"Carriers are totally useless and obsolete" said the Chinaman as he rushes to build as many carriers as he possibly can.
>>40571948I can't wait for the day a Chinese carrier strike group sails off the coast of California
>dont have enough ships to protect your own waters >spend $10 billion on meme carrier >send it on a dick waving mission to China they don't even have an operational MPA
>>40572150>protect your own watersfrom what?
>>40570947>>40571960>t. butthurt frenchman
>>40572183The Northmen, obviously.
>>40572183the russians are literally waiting to sink your ships with their subs
>>40572183Russians "Iranians" in dingys
>>40572196They're sailing through international water, nothing to defend against.
>>40571960>I can't wait for the day a Chinese carrier strike group sails off the coast of CaliforniaThey probably already have, they're terrible sailors and it wouldn't surprise me if they got lost and the admiral handed out the necessary bribes to keep people quiet.
>>40568436>>40568530I'd have gone with naming everything based exclusively on Arthurian legend.
>>40572190Yeah, sure. And Israel is our greatest ally.
