ok - over what timescale has the RN " kept its same budget " ? - if we are going to believe yoir friend
in the last few years , we have commisioned albion , bulwark , wavekinght ,
we have the first type45 in fitting out - with more underway
thats hardly - no new surface ships
as for subs - can you cite any major recent developments ? apart from those listed in published sorces ??
i am having a hard time swallowing yoiur premise that " most " of the RN is now silent service forces
unless you can cite some sources to convince me otherwise
