Not too far from what may soon be the truth though,we are forever naming our ships poncy-less intimidating names like we used to.

I wonder when HMS Stephen Lawrence or USS Mandela are launched?:rolleyes:

USS Draper-would have a 'proper' ops room with 'proper' valve radios and no silly flashin buttons-100% analogue!

No wrens at sea either!

How about a submarine USS Monica Lewinsky
Only goes down when ordered to by the President of the USA.

USS Ron Jeremy whilst being the fattest ugliest warship would also procure the best finishing shots!
