Two New Aircraft Carriers

To absolutely no one's surprise, the government has gone ahead with the order for two aircraft carriers, formally announced this week at a cost that seems to vary according to source between £3 and £4 billion. The ships, to be named HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales, will be the biggest and most powerful ever constructed for the Royal Navy.
