Hide All the Archdukes

The British Royal Navy's new aircraft Carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth is not due to begin flight trials until late next year and is expected to be fully operational in 2020. However, given the situation with the DPRK, the Royal Navy is now looking at the possibility of sending the ship to the area around the Koreas on short notice, before flight trials have even started. Presumably the trip to the other side of the world would be quite the shakedown cruise. 


This is a reminder that the Korean War, is still technically, legally going on (though there is a cease fire in effect) and that the war is actually a U.N. war, so if it goes hot, it can potentially drag in an awful lot of countries.
