came acroos this info
The Royal Navy's flagship, the aircraft carrier Ark Royal, is to be scrapped early as part of the government's defence review, the BBC has learned.

The move is part of the price paid by the Royal Navy for the decision to go ahead with two new aircraft carriers.

The Ark Royal - launched in 1985 - will be decommissioned almost immediately, rather than in 2014 as planned.

The Spending Review: Making It Clear

* What is the Spending Review?
* Cuts watch
* What would you do?
* Housing budget 'to be cut by 50%'

On Tuesday David Cameron will unveil details of the first strategic defence and security review in 12 years.

It is expected to see big spending cuts for the armed forces.

Chancellor George Osborne signalled on Sunday that the construction of two new aircraft carriers, HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales, would go ahead, when he told the BBC it would cost more to cancel the projects than proceed with them.

The BBC has also learned that at least one of the new carriers will be redesigned so that it can deploy normal fighter aircraft that do not need a Harrier-style vertical lift capability.
Emerging threats

The new design would allow American and French joint strike fighters to land on the new carrier.


It is thought the navy's new ships will have fewer new aircraft and the overall size of its fleet will be reduced.

And the Joint RAF/Fleet Air Arm Harrier force may face the axe, while some squadrons of RAF Tornado jets could be saved instead - although some air force bases will close


www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-...s-11570593

from that article
Axing the Harrier and Ark Royal means no planes will be able to fly from British aircraft carriers until 2019.



carriers with only American and French planes to fly from them??? Shocked

I'll cry in some beer for you chaps Crying or Very sad
