The UK’s Navy is currently without an operational aircraft carrier after the HMS Ark Royal carrier was scrapped in 2010.

HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier details/facts (Queen Elizabeth class battleships specifications and statistics)

Country/Owner/Operator: UK
Builders: BAE Systems Surface Ships, Thales Group, Babcock Marine (see below for more details).
Cost to Build: £3,5 billion (US$5,520 billion), which is exactly £7 billion for the two carriers of the QE-class by the 2008 contract. And the money goes to (related to the construction of both ships): £1,325mill to BVT Surface Fleet (BAE and VT Group joint venture) for building the huge sections at Govan & Portsmouth, £300mill to BAE for the sections at Barrow-in-Furness, £675mill to Babcock Marine for the bow section/final assembly/completion at Rosyth, £425mill to Thales UK (design/engineering), £275mill to BAE (design & supply of Mission Systems (Insyte), additional contracts for the steel, diesel generators, aircraft lifts, key electronics.

Jobs created: hull section (Portsmouth – 1200), hull sections (Govan/Clyde – 3000+), hull section (Barrow-in-Furness – 400+), BAE Systems Insyte (Frimley, Surrey – 145), Thales UK (Bristol & Crawley – 250), for the assembly of both ships (Rosyth – 1,600).
Size Comparison: HMS Queen Elizabeth will be 3 times the size of the UK’s only one remaining carrier HMS Illustrious and will be 2nd only to the USA’s nuclear-powered Nimitz-class aircraft carriers.

  • That was a very nice article. I’d like to see more of these about defense etc.. Thanks

  • With the globe so much smaller with long range missiles and aircraft it seems like a lot of capital investment that can be lossed with a 1 million dollar missile. 

    • I think i agree with Taravis as unusual as that may sound but… you can scare the hell out of a lot of rouge nations and leave the heavy lifting to the US.
       
      Now that million dollar missile is  really a good thought I hope they thought enough about that-
       
      later I need to run a jetta off the road now
