    ISTANBUL — Turkey is getting ready to widen the reach of its military considerably by building a multipurpose aircraft carrier with “trans-continental” capabilities. The 225-meter ship dubbed the Anadolu (or Anatolia), set to enter service in 2021, is designed to take fighter aircraft, attack helicopters, tanks, troops, and landing vessels to areas around the Mediterranean and as far as the Atlantic and the Indian Oceans, officials say. While some analysts say Turkey needs a carrier like this, some regard the project as an expensive expression of prestige and grandeur that far exceeds the country’s limits. The move is a sign...

By Greg Waldron on February 21, 2011 One likely side conversation at next week's Avalon air show is likely to be about the recent launch of the HMAS Canberra in Spain. The Canberra will be Australia's first LHD (landing helicopter dock) and is likely to become operational in 2014, with a sister ship, the HMAS Adelaide, to follow in 2015. These will be the largest ships the Australian navy has ever operated. With 16-24 helicopters per ship, the pair signals a resurgence of sorts in Australian naval airpower. The helicopters they...

Champagne was broken over the hull of the largest ever ship to be commissioned by the Australian Navy, the HMAS Canberra. Images were broadcast on Friday morning on Australian television of the giant amphibious vessel rolling into the water at the northern Spanish port of Ferrol.

After all, times are tough. Three-quarters of a billion dollars is three-quarters of a billion dollars. And France has never hidden its inclination to submerge principle when it comes to maintaining a profitable commercial relationship with the nation that supplies so much of Europe's oil and gas.
