    The Astute class is a highly capable platform and some would argue even better than the Virginia class. Some delay in my view is not a big deal when dealing with complexity. .

    Royal Navy SSN have been going through longer and longer deployments

    when they are short on subs they just stretch the deployments

    one of the longest was HMS Trenchant at 335 days in 2012 thats 11 months! imagine that

    RN submarines are very hard pressed and in my opinion with 2 x carriers they need to add another 4 x SSN to their fleet

    so instead of stopping at 7 x Astute they should continue for 11 in total

    it would've been of interest to see what Russian anti-aircraft assets in Syria had seen

    Or didn’t see. But this far it seems like at least the US F35 in the AOR are sporting lenses. The British are probably the same.

    RAF and RN both use F35B

    Over Syria no combat only used in intelligence and monitoring mode

    P-8 look good need 16 units though
