You always seem to ignore the question about how they hid the money, and kept thousands and thousands of people quiet about building a new ship.

The Invincible was never SUNK in Argentina, She sailed back from the Falklands in 1982 and I was there to see it. She was in tact, and she had been fired at in the WAR! but was never hit. She does still have the number R05 (believe me) and I was only on board six weeks ago. WE built the ship HMS Invincible and I can tell you that there has only been ONE Invincible which is a through-deck Cruiser and one with RO5!
Not sunk Never! and I should know for sure.

30th May 1982.
Two Super Etendards and four A-4C Skyhawks from FAA Grupo 4 attack task group from south. Two A-4s destroyed probably by Sea dart fired from HMS Exeter. HMS Avengers 4.5inch gun also claimed one of the aircraft. Both pilots, Lt. Varquez and Lt. Castillo, are killed.
Your attack , which you claim to have sank the carrier , was intercepted and destroyed.
I have also spoken to an Able Seaman who served on invincible in 1982 , and he just simply states that what you spouting is complete rubbish.
There is enough evidence , on reputeable websites (and the multitude of books) to completely refyte what you say.

This is simply 2 pilots vs some 1000 plus crewmen....
Tell me if I said that 2 harrier pilots took out the entire argentinian fleet with 2 J-Damms and 1 Exocet, then it would be the same arguement.
That picture shows only 1 carrier, those behind it are supply ships or something larger, superstructure is wrong, look at them.
If it was a carrier you would see the deck, also you can see the superstructure on the ships quite clearly on that nice zoomed in image.

And if you can´t see it who cares!!
in the first photo Ward is saying it returning and is not.
He is a lier.
And any of the argentines pilots would write a book like ward has wrote.
They are heroes not liers like Ward.

I can't see the HMS-Bristol in both photos.
HMS-Bristol is a single (only one ship) class 82, cruiser.
