The fully revised and updated, well respected guide to the ships, aircraft and weapons of the fleet. Over 80 colour photos. Complete with pennant numbers and silhouettes. Now expanded to include Royal Marine Craft and Border Agency vessels. This year it will include an entry for the newly commissioned aircraft carrier HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH. The book starts with a 'no-holds barred' review of the state of the Royal Navy followed by sections detailing the fleets of the Royal Navy, Royal Fleet Auxiliary and the support vessels operated under contract by Serco. Also included are the vessels of the Royal Marines, Army and the Border Force. Each class entry includes a full colour photograph together with a class listing, pennant numbers, technical specifications and brief notes. Similar sections cover the aircraft and weapons operated by the Royal Navy. The book concludes with a listing of those ships preserved within the UK and operating in a secondary role after decommissioning and a summary of those vessels which have been scrapped since the previous edition.
