There has been some joint Arctic training of late. At the moment there are cost saving proposals to scrap HMS Albion and Bulwark which are the two amphibious assault ships and cut the Royal Marine Numbers by a thousand.
Increasing the fleets overall carrying capacity with two new carriers plus large destroyers and frigates, while removing the amphibious capability is the mathematics of defeat.
