HMS Cumberland deploys to Libyan coast

#7
Presumably she will be suitably backed up by one of our aircraft carriers with a squadron or two of Harriers to provide air cover and a propper deterrent.............................oh hang on????????????????

As I mentioned in the Merged Libya thread, the ship's company of the 'Fighting Sausage' will love this. They deployed last September for their third six-month deployment East of Suez in as many years and were on their way home. Still, it adds a bit of spice to the mixture.

Whenever Cumberland gets back, she's due to join SDSR death row along with the three other survivors of her class so this is her final fling.

If it is on its way to the scrapper, would you not be tempted to sail into Tripoli and get the noisy toys out? - have that final fling and empty the magazines in order to make more room for duty free?
