    I'm posting more archive pics up to the free section of the Defence Image Database at http://www.defenceimagedatabase.mod....web/GridDI.fwx . As before, just register to get hold of the high res's.

    It's good to see the old images again, they're a bit ropey in places but well worth another look. They're also mirrored at www.flickr.com/photos/defenceimages

    ultras-askary - I don't know who/where you are, or what you are trying to achieve by posting apparently random photos on various threads, but if your aim is to annoy you've succeeded. Do us all a favour, until you have the faintest idea about military matters, please stop posting.

    Ultras-askary, the above seems like some really good advice.

    Actually i think HMS Daring makes the Enterprise look smaller than she has ever looked before next to a ship of Darings class....

    Hah, must be the same mysterious "50mm canon" that we apparently mount on Mastiff :

    It is a 6x6 wheel-drive patrol vehicle from Force Protection Inc. which carries six people, plus two crew. It has a maximum speed of 55 mph (89 kph), and can be armed with a machine gun, 50mm canon or 40mm automatic grenade launcher.
