#HMSMonmouth, laid up in Devonport since 2019 was officially withdrawn from RN service on 30 June 2021 (without formal decommissioning ceremony)

Will be towed to Portsmouth to be handed over to DRSO, most likely for scrapping.

Note: To keep Monmouth going would need a long and expensive LIFEX refit - funds better spent on improving availability of existing frigates,

Extraordinary achievement to have developed a 65,000 tonne aircraft carrier with a core ship's company of less than 800.

Will be great to see HMS Prince of Wales heading a bit further afield this week after a long period training and working up around the UK.

#LockHeedMartin says the F-35B Unit Recurring Flyaway (URF) cost has reduced by over 37% since the UK’s first order in 2009 (from $161 million to $101.3 million in 2020)

#LockheedMartin UK says in submission to Parliament that the slowed delivery of the first 48 F-35s due to financial pressures will likely delay the stand up of the second frontline squadron. 

809 Naval Air Squadron was supposed to stand up in 2023, may now be 2026
