    This is awesome to see HMS Daring going to sea. Fair winds and folling seas to the RN. I pray this ship lives up to the hype...Unilke the USN USS San Antonio LPD-17 which is beset by problems...

    Hey, Popeye, you'd better not jinx it! Otherwise you might wake up one morning to see a Sea Dart coming towards your bedroom window.

    Though I am sorry to hear about the USS Antonio. Can the DoD force the contractors to fix the work for not too much more money, or did they get someone else to sort it out?

    I don't think the USN can do more than gripe. They did take delivery of the ship and the ship passed sea trails...

    Read about the woes of LPD-17 in this link;

    Oh, so they can't claim because the ship is now having trouble? I don't know how it works with military vessels, but in the UK any work/product has to last a reasonable amount of time and be carried out with all necessary skill and care. You can't avoid that by having any disclaimers or refusal of warranty.

    Thanks for the link.

    Reguarding the LPD-17. I'm sure there are warranty issues that the builder and sub-contractors will take care of..

    Here's a quick doodle of how a CTOL CVF might look. Fingers crossed for some of us...

    She really is a handsome ship. I honestly can't remember the last time I thought that about a warship in the last few years.

    British soldiers tie a damaged US military vehicle to a truck after a suicide car bomb attack in Kabul, Afghanistan, 06 October 2007. A suicide bomber rammed his explosive-filled car into a US military convoy in Kabul killing six people, including a US soldier. The suicide attack was the third by the Taliban militants since 29 September to hit Kabul which has targeted the Afghan army and police and claimed more than 40 lives
