Saw a comment on one of the pages USS Alabama linked to, http://snafu-solomon.blogspot.com/20...s-america.html reads,
It would've been nice if for both the UK and France if the UK could just sell the second carrier to France. This would cost French jobs, but could save the UK defense budget - or at least a big chunk of it.
The more I read this the more I'm thinking it could be a realistic scenario. Apart from the POW not being nuclear and the fact the french have a largely different design in their heads, does anyone think that the POW could be built as a shell, sold, then fitted with french equipment?
Or am I just talking *ollocks?
