Is that 10 patrol boats out on an excersise because the RN no longer has 10 functional full sized warships it can assemble in one place anymore?

Yes. It's the only "squadron" with 10 operational ships. They're all University training ships. I'm surprised the Army aren't announcing the UOTC training camp. It must be a massive activity and totally essential and relevent to the defence of the realm?

Yeh those 10 dingys carrying a few SA80s are very menacing.
If I was on a gigantic destroyer with lots of massive guns capable of destroying an entire coastline in an hour and I saw those 10 little devils laden with pissed up students charging towards me, I'd turn the f*** around!

Better deterrant than Trident, that!

Nah, its to deter all the would be immigrants from N. Africa that France doesn't want, our squadron's ships are probably packed to the gunnels with instant halal meals & nicotine patches, possibly a medic to offer free medecine! :-(
More likely interpreters with loads of multilingual forms & advice on how to claim benefits here ! :-( :-(
