Best Defense

Now that’s defense cuts!

Now that’s defense cuts!

The Royal Navy may be cut to about 25 ships, total:

6 destroyers
6 frigates
7 attack subs
4 boomers
2 carriers

Yow. If this happens, Britain will have fewer warships than the Imperial Japanese Navy lost in just one battle, Leyte Gulf. (Where, for the record, the U.S. Navy sent to the bottom 4 carriers, 3 battleships, 8 cruisers and 12 destroyers.) Or less than half the 63 galleons and armed merchant vessels the Spanish Armada lost, mainly to storms.
