That's very kind of you. I'll inform the UK government.Have as many type 83 as you wish.
Last time I checked the Irish sea wasn't a major international shipping artery, nor was it disputed territory with one or more parties building military bases on islets or recovered land, threatening each other, etc.So long as the RN stay out of Chinese or Russian waters no one would care. Do you see any Chinese military vessels going up and down in the Irish sea?
If China wants to conduct a "freedom of navigation" exercise in the Irish Sea it's more than welcome to do so. It would just look really strange.
Oh, the old "you're lucky there's a teacher around" comment. Are China and Russia going to get us on our way home? I'm so scared!The only reason the "carrier strike group" is still sailing and not at the bottom of the sea following their activities in Russia and China is because of America.
Or maybe we'll see the German Navy's ship get sunk in mysterious circumstances? They've sent a frigate towards the disputed area, and as far as I know it's going to be operating by itself.
Lol, you are bitter, aren't you?At least France has a credible independent nuclear weapons platform, I'll give them that. The UK doesn't even have that.
Trident is both credible and independent. The only issue is that the US helps service our missiles, and they've got no reason to stop doing that.
