    Very Sure that one the patches they would wear is the Combine Operation patch

    I do love the history of what this Patch represents and the people behind it!

    I do know that King Abdullah is fond of the workings of Spec Ops around the world (heck he is sandhurst trained) ... STILL very surprise to see him here!

    Doesn't look like the same symbol to be honest. Bird is missing.

    UK and China joining the USA in the supercarrier club

    NextBigFuture.com•November 24, 2017


    [​IMG]
    The United States Navy has 11 active supercarriers. Supercarrier is an unofficial descriptive term for the largest type of aircraft carrier, typically those displacing over 70,000 long tons (71,000 metric tons).

    China and the UK will each have two active supercarriers by 2021.

    The United Kingdom’s first Queen Elizabeth-class carrier is undergoing sea trials and is expected to enter service in late 2017.

    HMS Queen Elizabeth (shown above) is the lead ship of the Queen Elizabeth-class of supercarrier, the largest warship ever built for the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom and capable of carrying up to 40 aircraft. The ship was named by Queen Elizabeth II in July 2014, began sea trials in June 2017 and will formally be commissioned in December 2017.

    Another evidence of British degradation.
    All we know, that in previouse centuries British Intelligence was one of the best in the whole world. But this times are already finished.
    What can we say about modern situation?
    Lets see. 30 Aug 2016 SIS report that there are only three intelligent services in Russia. Parliament cometee read it without any shadow of doubts, add to their own report. Than, "journalist's group Bellingcat" add it to their own report as another confirmation their psyhoproduction of "evil Russians, shooted down MH-17".

    No one stupid moron from these organisations had no even minimal doubts about number of Russian Intelligent Services, and didn't even try to read Wikipedia and visit Google.
    In reality (even official number) there are 14 (fourteen!) Intelligent Services in Russia.
    I think it is another evidence of full degradation of British Intelligence and a whole society.
