The UK's Secretary of State for Defence, Des Browne, has today announced to Parliament that the government has approved the construction of two new
aircraft carriers to replace the Invincible-class aircraft carriers which have been in service since the 1980s.
They are named:
HMS Queen Elizabeth
(due in 2014)
HMS Prince of Wales
I'll post up some links when the news sites get onto the story.
