    it could be pure fun to understand their argumentation for clogging the deck while an AAW frigate
    is around:

    now noticed "HMS Queen Elizabeth has a broadband connection of only eight megabits ..." inside kinda sensationalist article
    Britain spends billions on flawed F‑35s https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/...h?shareToken=48def4de799cfdbb2021c6c4c504183c

    ... as of today HMS Queen Elizabeth is still docked in Invergordon.
    @hmsqnlz

    [/QUOTE]

    Aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth has picked up an item of debris around one of her propeller shafts officials have confirmed, quashing earlier rumours of a major malfunction

    This article is dated 10 July..so then if irtis just debris why is she still docked a week later? Curious.

    Hopefully what ever the problem is it is minor and she will be underway soon..

    The JMSDF is almost as tight as the PLAN Type 071 and LCAC

    Why are they running those LHD with empty decks ? What are they carrying fresh air ?

    That deck sure look better with helicopter packed out

    That's how the roll. They are maintaining a low profile so their politicians won't realize they have aircraft carriers.:rolleyes:...Honestly it could be a lack of aircraft.

    GREAT Pics, and a great finish to a great exercise involving India, the US and Japan.

    The three of them working closely together in such exercises sends a strong message.

    Those three flat decks are, the USS Nimitz, India’s aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya, and on of Japan’s four helicopter carriers, JS Izumo

    The US Carrier (Nimitz) has 45 aircraft on deck.

    The Indian carrier (Vikramatitya) has 18 aircraft on deck:

    ...and the Japanese carrier, which I have seen with as many as six or eight helos at a time...has none in these pictures.
