Engines,

Right to the point as ever. The Falklands issue is a bit of an aside to this one. I was only saying that we took over from 1 Sqn at Stanley. Again, I would never belittle the SHars.

I go back to my main point, which is, we will have a carrier again. It needs the full group that goes with it. It needs the best AD (air superiority, perhaps) and then projection and and a proper strike/attack capability. But the AD comes first. As I said before, no use having a carrier if you leave it vulnerable and it gets hit.
