sorry but there is no way we have lost 100 major units (carriers, frigates, destroyers or subs) since 82

as I said we have 43 major units now, not all will be at sea at any one time. We still have the second or third largest navy in the world

If the Germans are well tricked out with Flectarn and woodland vehicles with a complete unit list then I may just have to do a Future Born 2nd SS Panzer Division out of them... Fascist separatests from the socialist spiral of Europe...

Har har another old Das Reich man that was my first division when I was young and had no sense but got better and do Russian now :twisted:

Aye thats what I'm meaning we might have 43 units but not at sea and yeah we have lost that many units , hell ships are no longer going to have permanent crews now their going to be rotated the admerality are non too happy bout it, but the cuts have been really bad i would say we're bout 4th in the world a sad echo of what we used to be, but when the new ships come along specilly the 2 new carriers and the new Ardent class subs.

Second largest in NATO due to displacement... I think number of hulls you might be either third or fourth though...

The Royal Navy is the second strongest navy in the world and London is the world centre for maritime financial and legal services.

The United Kingdom provides the second largest share of total allied naval tonnage, after the United States, and the third largest share of total allied tactical combat aircraft, trailing only the United States and France

Hopefully that will change once the new ships enter service I'm looking forward to seeing the new carrier supposed to be bigger than anything we have had.
