I believe that is the HMS Invinvible class CTOL/VTOL Carrier. Heres a link to a picture gallery of the ship from Global Security.

HMS Invincible

I could be wrong, this seems to be a common British design, but the Invincible is the first that came to mind.

Actually no it's not a quiz ~ I was already aware of the link being shown. I was hoping that people would answer just from basic military knowledge.

The first ship is the HMS Illustrious.
The second is the USS Peleliu.
The missile is a Sparrow.
The final one is a Japanese DD Murasame Class.

Edit: All thanks to the BIG BOOK OF MILITARY STUFF my parents bought me.
