|At the moment i am at a loss at to knowing what is meant to be happening with the new CVF carriers for the Royal Navy. i know that the project has been given the green light to continue, and that both ships are to be built, but from here on in I?m lost. different places state different things, some sources say that one carrier will be in service while the other is reserved, some say that the second carrier will be used while the first is being refitted etc etc, others say that the second carrier will be immediately decommissioned, and some say that the second carrier might even be sold or immediately scrapped.
Can anyone actually tell me conclusively what is meant to be happening?. Also with the budget was there any capability reductions specified?, i know that air compliment has been reduced, does anyone have any exact details on this aspect as well?
Any information would be greatly appreciated; I am really hoping for the answer that Britain will be keeping both at hand. Also would you think that by only operating one carrier the Royal Navy will see a great loss in capability, or will even the one carrier be significant progress over the two smaller invincible class carriers?
