  1. Every friend of the UK is pleased that the RN is getting back into the Naval strike business, but, overplaying this achievement is bad form. Notwithstanding that the QE class represents the largest vessels ever built for the RN, the class is not a supercarrier. These vessels are indeed large and carry a significant force but they will carry only one type of fast jet, require prime mover fueling and are 2/3rds. the size of the Nimitz class. A nation with supercarrier capability should be able to maintain presence in world trouble spots indefinitely. With only two vessels that are not fully equipped with jets the UK does not yet possess this capability. These ships represent a significant first step to achieve this capability but the vessels will have to sortie, much like the Falklands efforts, to bring air power to the scene.
