France and the UK will cooperate on this because it effectively doubles our budget, and allows us to make a credible attempt to close the gap a little with the US.

If germany, italy and spain were brought on board then maybe we could even see a Europe with a decent self defence capability.

The only problem with this being that the manuals for all the new toys would be huge as they try to fit five languages in!

We're talking about the UK not the US working with France on the Royal Navy's Future Aircraft Carrier project CVF to replace the Invincible class carriers.

What I am saying is, there is no "better" only more equipped or more powerful or more mobile or etc
No carrier I know of has all of these "more" than the oposition.

No one rifle is the best, its just better overall or has more things better than somethign else.
Like the M-16 A2 is more reliable than the SA-80 A2 in the desert BUT the SA-80 A2 will be more accurate.
