It obvious focuses heavily on Trafalgar, it's a fantastic read.

    HMS Victory a 104-gun first rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, laid down in 1759 and launched in 1765. Nelsons flagship at Trafalgar in 1805... still in service (preserved as a museum ship but still in commission). A glorious ship that lead British forces to victory in one of the most important battles in British history!

    I still think the best naval photos are always the BBs. USS Pennsylvania, making a move on the Japanese-held Philippines:

    "With a terrible noise that forest of lances dropped with one movement toward the heads of the horses, and fifteen squadrons of that cavalry accustomed to crush everything before it moved forward like a giant cloud."

    As much as I would prefer we kept Ark Royal, the realities of the situation we're in means we don't need it. It wouldn't even have been used or be of much use in Libya. The Harrier was a fine aircraft but it wasn't long range and it couldn't deliver stand off missiles. It must be faced that the Ark was a relatively small strike carrier with a very soft punch. We're getting two new supercarriers in part due to the money saved by cutting the fleet. The ship was a nice capability but one we can live without until 2019.

    We had garden navy, bathtub navy and here's Photoshop navy. Here's what Americans will be packing in 2015 - if Chinese lend them money to build it:

    It's huge, it's modern, it's loaded with computers, it's scary, it's kinda cute and it has quite a few new cool toys - like electro-magnetic catapults to launch aircraft. CVN-78 USS Gerald R. Ford. This one is going to replace Enterprise.

    Having browsed through cool naval stuff under construction, I found out India is going to have quite some navy in a few years. They are prepping two Carriers, among 3 dozens other vessels. This is Vikrant class, being designed and built entirely in India in Cochin shipyards. It's going to carry 40x Mig-29k multi-roles around and in general will be quite badass. I don't expect them fighting for the Arctic Circle - but maybe in the Somali expansion? ;-)



    As a sidenote, Indians together with MIGs and tech also bought this Soviet old junk and have it refitted now in Russia to be operational around the same time their local carrier gets builts - so two CBGs total by 2015. $2.5 bil a piece, but no girl could resist. Baku aka Admiral Gorshkov aka INS Vikramaditya.

    While India overpaid Russians for their old not-battleship, Brazil bought an old CV from France for bare $12 mil, added modernized A4 Skyhawks from Kuwait (remember Falkland War? those got owned by Harriers there - but they also bravely defended Kuwait in the Desert Storm so maybe it evens out) and will have their replacement for Minas Gerais (good old Colossus class btw) fully operational later this year after they finish installing cable tv (not a joke) and all other crucial systems on it. Rumour says it runs on vegetable oil now (now I am kidding). :-)
