Guarding our waters

By psmiddy, Nov 2 2018 10:01AM

Attended an interesting presentation yesterday on the RAF's procurement of the P8 Poseidon. Its entry into service comes not a moment too soon - Russian sub activity around our island is higher than at any time since the Cold War.

On that note the Russian Navy has not had a good week, its carrier Admiral Kuznetzov has been damaged, along with the floating dry dock in which it was sitting, by a fallen crane. Careless.

Meanwhile the home team has been making new milestones in the introduction into service of the F35B off the Queen Liz.
