China SURRENDERS as The BRITISH ARMADA With the Striking Power of 18 Fixed-Wing Aircraft Enters Its Kill Zone
8 of which are actually British
HMS Queen Elizabeth, a British aircraft carrier, and its Carrier Strike Group have entered the South China Sea, a territory predominantly claimed by China, reports the UK Defence Journal.
Great Britain has sailed a carrier group into the South China Sea! Whoah! A whole carrier group!
Well it’s a “carrier group” of sorts. It has a carrier that has aircraft, sort of. And escorts, sort of.
HMS Queen Elizabeth comes sailing with 18 fixed-winged aircraft, 10 of which are operated by the US Marine Corps. Yes, the “British” “carrier group” boasts 8 British fixed-wing aircraft.
It also boasts the escort of 3 frigates, 2 of which are actually British, and 2 destroyers, one of which is British.
There was a second British destroyer escorting it but its engines broke down in hot water.
That is a thing. British destroyers break down in hot water.
The RN has confirmed that Daring-class Type 45 destroyer, HMS Diamond, has detached from the UK’s Carrier Strike Group 2021 (CSG 21) following ‘technical issues’.
The ship stayed in Augusta, Sicily, whilst the remainder of CSG 21 transited the Suez Canal to begin the second leg of its maiden deployment.
Well, now that the strike power represented by eight British F-35s, ten US F-35s, one British destroyer (that only deploys anti-air missiles), and one US destroyer sails deeper into China’s A2/AD missile umbrella, Beijing will have no choice but to give up Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Apple.
