  1. Splendid.

    Do you think Daring will sail with a full set of missiles in her magazines? Just as importantly, will the Iranian's believe Daring is fully armed or take the gamble that she isn't.....

  2. I hope they still have chaff rounds.
  3. I'm hoping they don't send an away-team off without decent backup.

    I have it on good authority that she is equipped with over 200 32gb IPod Touches

  5. I hope that the NAAFI shop is "stored for war" they may be there some time.
  6. Often, the good old tried and tested "old" technology performs better than the B.Ae new fangled expensive crap.
  7. I thought HMS Albion was the RN's "Flagship"?
  8. Any Missile... what if they fire two?

  9. Yes, but Albion isn't exactly a fighting vessel (for this duty) in comparison with HMS Daring. Albion is for landing troops, (generally).
  10. Not to speak ill of our naval cousins nor would I wish it to happen at all, but what would happen if the Iranians sunk it?

  11. Swim?

    Wouldn't we be better renaming it HMS Amethyst for this Op?
    Or USS Maddox or HMS Gulf of Tonkin.

    Tradition and all that

    Are we looking for a fight this week?

  13. After all the gobbing off about how good it is, would that be the final nail in the coffin of our military projection abroad (what little we have)?
  14. HMS Darling???? Skippered by Captain Blackadder?
