Did they get fresh paint for the event? They look pretty good. 

   Those are German and Japanese subs, IIRC, they probably have enough attention.

   The crane will be used for the construction of supertankers, gas carriers, the Leader icebreaker and other types of marine equipment, including for work in the Arctic.

Not a picture or art, but still interesting:

TL;DR, Bismarck and Tirpitz are overrated, Richelieu, Sodak, and Vittorio V are surprisingly matched (in armor, at least), and Yamato has great deck armor, but only slightly above average main belt armor.

wait, there’s 2 Queen E’s?

 

There's always been 2 of them.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince of Wales.

 

Problem is the Royal Navy don't have enough money to operate the second one let alone enough planes (not even sure they have enough planes for the first one tbh).

So there have been a lot of options in the past: retrofit it to CATOBAR and use F-35C (and actually have a proper carrier) or keep it to STOBAR and lease it to other nations using F-35B (primarily the US)

 

If I recall correctly the first option doubled the cost so was abandoned pretty quickly and as for the second, the US doesn't really need yet another carrier.

 

Right now I think that the plan is to keep it and to use it when the QE is on maintenance which is probably the best choice they could have done, since there is no clients for this type of carrier and this way are sure to always have a carrier available and have a platform to keep the training of their pilots going (our pilots have to go train in the US when the CdG is in maintenance).
