Review the British military pls bby
Ah yes, in it’s current form, the twilight of a long-gone titan.
Let’s start with Britannia’s biggest asset through its history, the main reason they conquered the world, the Royal Navy:
Somewhat recovered from the terrible, terrible late 00′s, and currently build around the yet-to-be in service Queen Elizabeth carriers, it’s still the best navy in Western Europe, but with the Italians and French dangerously close, but in the world scheme a far cry from navies like China’s and India’s, both possessing greater number of ships, aircraft carriers in service, and, on paper at least, better amphibious capacities.
It’s an adequate force for the current challenges the country faces, but against a foe like Russia it can’t stand on its own. Plus I can’t forgive the lack of a catapult in the QE carriers, specially since the British originally invented them!
Now, the British Army:
In my opinion, the most experienced and best trained in the world, but plagued by budget restrains, politically-motivated procurement, questionable and downright shitty equipment (looking at you Chally 2′s rifled gun and bullshit L85 rifle) and overall a size too small for the challenges ahead.
And finally, the Royal Air Force:
Frankly, this is the only force that seems to be doing everything right: The combat fleet is based around the Typhoon, an all-around excellent multirole jet, supported by the Tornado, an excellent ground-attack jet, and accompanied by a well-balanced network of varios combat aircraft, from electronic warfare, transports, trainers to helicopters, their main deficiency being the complete lack of any maritime patrol plane, after the disastrous Nimrod program ate up the budget to that affair.
So overall, for the European theater it’s adequate, but only if someone else is supporting them, and in the international theater, they have enough power projection to ensure influence in the world, but which can be easily challenged by many of the world’s armed forces.
