PCRF = Primary Casualty Receiving Facility ?!Argus is a vital asset to NAS for training in the SCEXAs as well as a R3 PCRF. Not only that she can house a Sqn of Merlins and operate CH47s, operationally advantageous. She is equipped with an ops room with advance radar and EW systems meaning the ship can operate on the front line where she can best be utilised in all capacities... Currently deployed to the Caribbean.
There was talk of replacement and it was scrapped, instead an extending life refit. Options for PCRF is to have a shakeon style capability that can be placed on the Bay Class of required for R3 medical.
"shakeon style capability" . . . I reckon this means containerised facilities, that can/would be lifted onto the rear
(flight deck) of the Bay Class . . . or any other suitable ship.
But, to what does "shakeon style" refer ?!
