Hi , Abit of Information on the Royal Navy latest Aircraft Carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth , she comes in at a gross tonnage of 65,000 tons and a top speed of 25 knots , carrying a full complement of 75 F-35 aircraft . The flight deck is painted with a special type of paint that dissipates the heat from the engines of the F-35. Her hanger space could fit two Type 23 side by side , the flight deck has the area of 4 football pitches. She has a full complement of 700 , which is less that the Invincible Class which had 850 . Her sister ship ,HMS Prince of Wales will join the fleet in 2021 after completing her sea trials.
Greetings folks, I have been chatting along with a few others on MLU about arranging a carrier only event in the Arena at W & P 2014 and had a lot of very positive feedback. As the most numerous armoured vehicles ever made I really want to make this work and we are so far up to 11 vehicles. Any "carriers" are welcome, universal, bren, T16, Lloyd, Windsor, Carden Loyd VI, MG carrier in fact I think we could include the Renault Chenilette if anyone brought one over - I have only ever seen one working ! It would be a first at War and Peace and to represent as many different producing countries in the D DAY anniversary year would be good too, Canada, Australia, N Zealand, UK, USA. Oh and have a great Christmas everyone. Andy Mitchell
