Delivering Carrier Strike

DS notes the recent publication of the NAO report on Delivering Carrier Strike and posts links Below:

“The Department has made good progress and clear plans to achieve an initial Carrier Strike operating capability by December 2020, but it still has a lot to do as it brings together the equipment, trained crews, infrastructure and support. Problems in any of these areas could mean use of the carriers is delayed or reduced. The programme will shortly move into a high-risk period of trials, testing and training which may affect plans and increase costs. The closely timed sequence of tasks offers no further room for slippage and there remain significant risks to value for money.”

Amyas Morse, head of the National Audit Office, 16 March 2017
