Is that to be the class or the name? If it’s to be the name, that alone will make it target #1 for any enemy of the Crown to attack and sink.

The Brits are determined to build and equip two smallish entries in the modern supercarrier class — which is a wise precaution given that the Argentines are making noises again about the Falklands. Apart from national pride, the likelihood of substantial oil and gas deposits makes retention of those remote islands a paying proposition despite the burden of defending them.
OK yes technically this is a brand new bow. However the use of the adjective misleads as it implies there was some old bow that was replaced.

Gah, a 1,000-tonne bow? I wonder what the arrows weigh.
