Isn't the British Armed Forces trying to cut manpower down to like 100,000 or less?

Fucking idiots. You lot all deserve the economic disaster that's going to happen as a result of Brexit.
And you deserve everything when your brain screams for alcohol and all you have is wine.

Thanks for the pic. I pictured the Mosquito being single engine and probably why I confused it with the Spitfire. I had no idea that the Mosquito could fly 415 MPH. Is that straight line or in a dive?
That was a bomber version in level flight, the fastest night fighter version, the Mk 30 which came out in early 44 could reach a speed of 424 mph.

Incorrect.It was the Hood that sank Germanys latest and greatest battleship.The Hood was a small destroyer weighing only 1 tenth of the Bismark.The Bismark became easy pickings because its rudder was disabled.
Behave yourself <_<

Indeed, we need a massive army to defend the Empire we no longer have. <_<

The HMS Hood was a battle wagon. She was not a small destroyer. Yes the Bismark was larger but not that much larger. Furthermore the HMS Hood was sunk by the Bismark. The HMS Hood was designated a Admiral Class Battle cruiser. That type of ship is often referred to as a "pocket" Battleship. The Hood was armed with 15 inch Naval Guns. Rather big for a small destroyer. Now have another drink

The term Pocket Battleship was used to describe a class of German warship in the 1930's which, while heavily armoured and with guns the same size as a battleship, was smaller with less guns.

I was trying to remember a doco I saw 5 years ago.I do remember the Bismarks rudder was disabled and it became cannon fodder for a much smaller Ship.I thought that ship was called the Hood.If I am wrong,and I think I am,because you are coke the magnificent,and you could never be wrong.I am sorry for posting a lie that I thought was true.
