What about all of the other infrastructure that needs guarding? Do the Navy have a regiment that guard SPODs? I don't think the Future Commando Force will spend much time on stag. We don't need a stagging on force. If (as would be right) the RAF gets its budget slashed, they shoud be forced to drag themselves into the 21st century. UAVs and not having the SRDG would be a start.
Hilarious.. 'cos the FCF ME isn't to act as the Andrew's high-readiness, forward contingency force, at the core of Littoral Response?
I would have thought that if any key RN asset was exposed enough in any kind of dodgy berth, the Andrew would just sail said BFO floating tower block over the horizon, out of harms way?
Try that with a Crab DOB.. It'd be like trying to herd cats into a cement mixer...
