    part of the upgrade program was a locker full of white flags - seeing as we are working closer with the french now. and an english-arabic-english dictionary.
     
  7. And ipods with Pashto music loaded.
     

  8. It's OK, she will be gone soon enough.

    well I dont know - they know they have messed up big time and we havent anything like a cruiser but theres lods of space and crew quarters so I reckon a load of AS as90s and chally 2s will end up lashed to the deck.

    thats why they kept the ramp, greater elevation and they can fly drones off it to spot for them :)
