    Thumbs up HMS Prince of Wales : Return of the Prince

    36,500 tons British Battlesip HMS Prince of Wales, together with HMS Repulse, were sunk on 10 December 1941 off the coast of Malaya during World War II.

    Check it out at youtube.

    65,000 tons British aircraft carriers, HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales.
    Expected to enter service in 2012 and 2015.
    It will be the largest and most powerful warships ever built in the UK, and 3 times larger than the Invincible class aircraft carriers.



    And I bet the Prince will visit Singapore one day.

    Sui!

    I have got the Tamiya 1/350 scale HMS Prince of Wales (and 1/600 HMS Repulse), but still sitting in the box unbuilt!

    Wonder why one picture shows the aircraft carrier with a ski jump ramp and the other has a conventional flat top?

    Future aircraft would be boring because everyone would fly some variant of the F-35.

    Interesting to note that it has two "islands" instead of the traditional single. Similar as the future French AC.

    The future AC, USS Gerald Ford, is still having a single island and its getting smaller. Wonder is the USN trying to make it stealthier?
