There are no British carriers anymore. William is a search and rescue helicopter pilot, so no combat either. Just rescuing fisherman and lost sheep. All S&R pilots get a falklands posting.

We do, HMS Illustrious, we just don't have any aircraft to fly from her :) so not an aircraft carrier, but while HMS Ocean is in for a refit, Illustrious is taking over the role of High Readiness Helicopter and Commando Carrier ;)

http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/The-Fleet/Sh...llustrious

And the US has trained a couple of specialised Marine AV8B squadrons along with AV8B aircrews to operate from one of the UKs invincible class carriers.

The theory goes that the new type 45 Destroyers have made Carriers obsolete, due to the extreme targeting and missille system on board. They can take out 48 targets at one down to the size of an orange from 60 miles away.

While perhaps true to a point, there is the other side of the coin, once you sweep the enemy from the skies, you would want to be the one to control the air while you land troops etc, so carriers would still be important in those situations where you want to gain the psychological advantage given by having air superiority.

I've heard the Brits are friends with the U.S., and that the U.S. has aircraft carrier battle groups...

yeay, Britain gets another carrier... called Airstrip 1 Lol

Though have to admit Obama seems less popular with the Liberals around here than the previous Pres, that is going on the number of times an tableux vivant of him has been made.

HA! I got a Pin!
Well, I think I'll use this opportuniy to once again promote my Prince William is going to be the Antichrist belief. That's what you get for pinning my dumb shit, Mods!
He (William) was on a British carrier in the Argentinian region in recent weeks, but I am not certain if he played a combat or humanitarian role. I heard some BBC report on NPR about it a few weeks back.

There are no British carriers anymore. William is a search and rescue helicopter pilot, so no combat either. Just rescuing fisherman and lost sheep. All S&R pilots get a falklands posting.

yeah no carriers but shh don't tell the argies FFS.
Also I combat and humanitarian roles are the same thing these days. Embrace thou impending destruction.

RE: 30th anniversary of Falklands War
I saw a docu about medics and doctors in the falklands last night. They did a fantastic job under a lot of pressure. They treated argentinian soldiers as well and with as much respect as their own.
The lead doctor of the main field hospital was honoured by Britain and Argentina. He is the only soldier to be honoured by both sides in a war apparently.

I have met the submarine commander who sank the argentine destroyer Belgrano, 323 men killed i think. A mass murderer.
