    I'm not sure how we (or any Navy) is going to stop one of these though.

    Admiral Lord West, today or Yesterday in the House of Lords said it was a bit foolish to put one ship in the black sea without any protection. The truth might be that there is no protection in there. Perhaps we should just get out of the area before someone on either side gets spooked and rounds start going down by mistake.

    The news report suggests Duncan could have jammed the electrics on the planes and downed them all in one hit

    They fire them from 600 miles away according to some sources. I'm doubtful of such reports at that sort of range but I honestly don't know.
