For the first time in nearly four decades, the Royal Navy has an operational porters strike group. On Monday the UK Department of Defense announced the initial operational readiness (IOC) for the HMS Queen Elizabeth strike group, which means that all elements – fighters, radar, air defense systems, pilots and crew members – are considered operational.

« This is an extremely important milestone for HMS Queen Elizabeth, the Royal Navy and the whole country. This achievement is a testament to the determination of our service and industry workforce to produce this world-class military capability possessed by only a handful of nations, « Secretary of Defense Jeremy Quin said in a statement. « I wish the entire Carrier Strike Group every success before their first operational deployment this year. « 

According to the Royal Navy, the Queen Elizabeth will be stationed on a global route to the Mediterranean, Indian Ocean and East Asia later this year. Fully operational (FOC) is expected in 2023.

An early repetition of the Queen Elizabeth strike group carried out exercises in the North Sea last October. Nine ships, 15 fighter planes, 11 helicopters and 3. 000 personnel from Great Britain, the United States and the Netherlands took part in the exercise – the largest and most powerful European-led naval force that has gathered for nearly 20 years. It was also the UK’s largest porters strike group since the 1980s.

The U. . S.. . Naval destroyer USS Die Sullivans and the Dutch naval ship HNLMS Evertsen were part of the carrier’s escort squadron and a division of 10 U during the maneuvers. . S.. . Marine Corps F35-B fighters rounded off their air wings.

« The new British Carrier Strike Group is the embodiment of British naval power and is at the heart of a modernized and encouraged Royal Navy, » said Commodore Steve Moorhouse, the strike group’s commander, during the exercise last year. “HMS Queen Elizabeth is protected by a ring of advanced destroyers, frigates, helicopters and submarines and equipped with fifth generation fighters. It can strike from the sea at a time and place of our choice. « 

The UK is also launching a procurement program to purchase more dry storage supplies, an integral part of the energy projection for a large airline strike group. The Royal Navy currently has only one on active duty, the 26-year-old RFA Fort Victoria. The fleet oilers have already been replaced with four new hulls built in South Korea, and a new tender for a fleet support ship was opened in October. Controversially, it is open to proposals that include a foreign component as long as « a significant part of the construction and assembly work » remains in the UK.
