The most ugly ship if ever there was one.

Looks like she bumped into something!

I imagine if you asked an old salt his first concern would be the massive topside target for an incoming missile/shell.

As far as I know there are three ships similar to one another all built by Navantia Spain.

I'm sure this joke of a ship will put the fear of god into the Chinese. The ski jump was designed for the Harrier jet, but Australia doesn't have any jump jets. Another disaster by the Australian government who hasn't got a clue what they are doing. If you think I am wrong do a google on the proposed new submarines the taxpayer is expected to pay for. Billion dollar duck eggs which will be out of date when completed. ( China has taken note )
This explains why the position of minister of defence has a revolving door policy, so you can never pin anybody down, it's always the other parties fault.
I feel so sorry for the Australian navy personnel who are top notch, but have to work for idiots in Canberra.

The comment above on the submarines which is correct contracts authorized by a minister and prime minister no longer in political life is extraordinary and a complete waist of tax payers money. They can't get enough crews for frigates let alone 12 sub's for the future. A complete farce.

Thanks Peter, I'm glad I am not alone with my views on waste and stupidity.

Every submarine does not have to be best in class, they have regional roles to play, not just the aim of taking out the cream of the Chinese or Russian fleets. Likewise if the ski ramp is only Harrier centric, how come the QE and PoW have them when the Brits don't have the Harrier? Come on lads, stop whinging just because you lost the cricket....

I had a chuckle when the cricket came into this conversation.
It dawned on me that we are being robbed by everyone!! that game could not be lost until a burglar came along. LOL

RHP, remember it's not over until the fat lady sings.

Mrs Smith's little boy will be back soon to save us.

You say that not every submarine has to be best in class, does that apply to test players? Just a thought.

The QE and PoW have ski jumps for the F35's which are vertical takeoff/landing aircraft much the same as the Sea Harriers were. Maybe the Australian Navy fitted ski ramps to their ships thinking that they might carry similar aircraft one day. As for the cricket - ha ha ha yes the burglars have been in action all through this Ashes series, and both sides have been burgled at times, yesterday was just our turn to get the rub of the green + your capitaino Paine stupidly wasted a review on a very obvious n/o just before he really needed it !

I think there has been some miscalculation with the Australian carrier, not exclusively with teh ski jump, QE & PoW as stated can launch Harrier or F35, however to recover the F35 one needs a heat strengthened deck for which i dont believe the Australian carrier is fitted, hence although they could launch F35 they cannot recover them. The heat issue has been know since the aircraft first flew. that is probably the area of poor planning that should be addressed.
