Conway presents the revised and updated official MoD guide to the Royal Navy of today and tomorrow, examining all aspects of the service, covering strategic forces, the submarine and surface fleets, naval aviation, the Royal Marines Commandos, Royal Fleet Auxiliary and support forces, Joint forces, naval bases and future procurement. It contains a wealth of information on every type of vessel, aircraft and weapons system in service, as well as detailing projects which are currently in the development and construction phases. 'Such significant technological advances include the STOVL variant of the Lockheed-Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the two much-publicised Future Aircraft Carriers HMS Queen Elizabeth and Prince of Wales, the Astute class submarines, RFA Bay Class Large Amphibious Landing Ships, and the Viking Amphibious Armoured Vehicle, now being used very effectively by Royal Marines Commando units deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan. 'Full specifications of vessels, aircraft and other equipment are presented, along with colour illustrations and plans showing the full extent of Royal Navy offensive, defensive and logistical forces in unprecedented detail. There are also key insights from serving members of the Royal Navy, who give an insider view of life at the helm, illuminating the practicalities and advantages of new, sophisticated ships, aircraft and weaponry.
