Both Brit Carriers to Take F-35

Last week I pointed out a story which claimed that the Prince of Wales, the second of two new British aircraft carriers, could be switched to a helicopter-only commando carrier.

British defence equipment and support minister Quentin Davies called the report “complete rubbish.”

He also noted that the British have no intention to cut back on the number of F-35s they plan to purchase. This had been the reason cited for the downgrading of the carrier.


  1. I am under very good knowledge that there is no way that the design of the carrier can now be changed… it’s gone too far.

    Anyways, it’s probably more likely they would can the whole project. They are already going to probably can the nuclear submarines that are meant to replace those in service!

    The British Navy is a woeful size consider what it used to be capable of!
