              >2 carriers to 1
              UK only effectively has 1 carrier currently for 2 reasons. PoW is down for extended repairs and there isn't even enough F-35s for QE as is (at like 2/3 standard cap and less than 1/2 of surge). Meanwhile CdG is full-up and can launch AWACS which is gonna be of prime importance in SCS/ECS engagements. Plus, if you are gonna steam all the way over there then surely you acknowledge the advantge of it being nuclear powered?
              >Has a small naval base in Singapore
              And France has one in New Caledonia
              >Has 13 resupply ships to Frances 3
              I only know of 7 but still yeah, I didn't even intend to dispute this one (though its not AL lopsided as it first seems due to the nuclear vs oil issue above)

              Yup

              >anon, not trying to shit on France btw.
              And I'm not trying to shit on the UK. They had great shit and you didn't even list all the advantages they have. I was just pointing out that in some ways the French have greater capabilities.

              What metrics? There are none that I can even imagine that give France a credible ability to project power at all, let alone greater than the UK.

              We're talking about a country that could not independently deploy and sustain a small, light motorised force conducting an extremely low intensity police action in Mali. I cannot imagine what measure of force projection makes them look good.

              You can read above but I'm picking up serious vibes that you already have your heart set and just want to instigate a fight. If so, know that I have zero interest.

                >carriers
                No matter what way you try spin it 2 is better than 1. It's down for a new propellor the one built in France broke, the same happened to the CdGs prop.
                >Nuke powered being a pro for France
                No, it's slow as frick and has to resupply food and stores anyway France has a tiny replenishment fleet so it being nuclear holds no pros here. The UK carriers can go for longer due to having more replenishment ships, 13 to 3. Nuclear carriers are great for powers with large support fleets like the US, relatively small Navies? Not so much.
                >New Caledonia
                Bro, are you trolling? New Caledonia is 4 fricking thousand miles away from the South China Sea. The French Naval base in Reunion is about the same distance.
                Singapore is literally right there next to the South China Sea.
                >Nuclear vs Oil
                It's not just oil, sailors need to drink/eat ships need stores it's not all about fuel.

                Again the UK has and does carry more missiles than the French German and Italian fleets combined.
                608 vs 672 VLS lethality is very much on the side of the RN.

                Is food really that big a deal? I would have expected the fuel on an oil-fueled ship to easily weigh an order of magnitude more than the food stores.

                The RN has 2 smaller carriers, but in reality 1 is likely to be in port/refitting whilst the other is at sea. France has 1 very large carrier, but also maintains 3 amphibious assault ships (Mistral) to the UKs 1 (of 2 Albions, 1 is in unmanned reserve). The RN and MN are both blue-water, but both have budgetary constraints, and are equipped for slightly different roles.

                Ok so you are referring to a class of ship that’s still only on paper and past UK capabilities.. that doesn’t make much sense imo. What stealth capabilities will the aircraft on the next French carrier possess once it’s finally built?

                You seem to default to very black and white thinking when my entire point was indicating there was a gray area. Please try to understand.

                >No matter what way you try spin it 2 is better than 1
                You're absolutely right. I'm just pointing out that AT THE MOMENT they both have 1. The lack of planes for QE is a big deal; recall that those are supposed to be shared with the RAF and even taking them all still leaves the ship underequipped.
                >No, it's slow as frick and has to resupply food and stores anyway...
                You're right, it has to resupply food/etc. But not having to worry about fuel especially while halfway around the world and under combat conditions is a big deal, even just from an availability to respond prespective. As for slow: Yes it is a bit slowER but not by that much, you're splitting hairs.
                >New Caledonia is 4 fricking thousand miles away
                Its also that far from ECS, a distance well within the range of its ships. Embarking from Singapore and avoiding the SCS the RN would go a similiar distance. Its basically trading easier access to the SCS for more susceptible to missile strikes from China.
                >it's not all about fuel.
                Correct, but it is a factor. I was merely pointing that out.
                >I doubt it and its pointless to argue somthing that is likely top secret
                Not all the differences are top secret or unavailable to OSINT. I'd like to hear your doubts.
                >more VLS
                I could contend that reducing naval strength down to VLS cells is idiotic but instead I'll just again indicate that this is not about who is best. For example, France's destroyers are better equipped to combat submarine threats.

                >Monge
                >carrier AWACS

                It seems you are granting that FRance has these. So while we may disagree on the number it seems you do now agree that France has some greater capabilities to project power than the British...yes?

        In reality it would be more like

        Also Germany is a sleeping powerhouse when it comes to ground forces and logistics. It contributed the 3rd largest contingent of troops to afghanistan after the US and the UK and it had a total of 150k afghanistan vets. It has also demonstrated that it can forward deploy small contingents overseas on its own when it did so against daesh.

          Did they? I thought the reason Britain gave back HK is because China was getting more powerful and Britain couldn't be fricked to have an argument over it, so they just handed it back to China. I thought many HKers liked being British.

            Nah, the reason Britain gave Hong Kong back was that the British government's lease on the island ran out. The Bongs didn't conquer or take Hong Kong from Imperial China, they bought it. When the lease ran out (after 100 years, as is typical) they had to give it back.

            Practical reason was Thatcher asked the military if they would be able to defend HK from chang ape out like Falklands. They deemed it impossible as they projected what they would do if they were changs. So the motion was put forward to start slowly giving in to the mainland crazies.

                This may come as a surprise to some but Germanish speaking Norse men settled literally everywhere in Europe during the migration period and the Viking age. The Norsemen settled the coast along France and Belgium and were given lordship over the locals and then assimilated their language after 200 years. The Franks originally did not speak French as its spoken today. And the Burgundians came from Bornholm in Scandinavia and conquered the local folks and were given lordship over them and slowly switched their tongues over time in the same way. Some Norse was still spoken among some Normans during the 1066 invasion even though it was not spoken as often. Germanish folks invaded and settled as far as the Americas and Africa and Russia during the migration period and the Viking age.

                Also I forgot to mention that the English army that fought the Normans in 1066 had just marched hundreds of miles from battling the Norse in northern England. Since the Norse had also invaded there for the last 200 years as well.

              They occasionally sail around the UK and maybe through the Mediterranean and that's is, even the damn Italian navy does more than them with all like 3 of the boats they have, France actively works with the US military and needs boats because unlike the UK they still have overseas colonies around the world.

              Korean War, Falklands, Gulf War I, Sierra Leone, Gulf War II, and Libya were all successful Royal Navy operations.

              Yeah, like France and it's successful record of 1v1 naval warfare in the modern era?

              The way I read this is they only did shit during the Falklands and every single other one was a US operation that the british showed up to so they could seem important, good for them.

              The numbers don't correlate to what you're claiming.

              Because the numbers don't show the absolute joke that is the British Navy, they "have" more boats in the same way Russia "has" more tanks than any other army in the world. Once you actually see the fleet you see how atrocious they actually are.

                No lol. They still routinely sail the Pacific and Indian oceans as well. It's not to say that France isn't good either, objectively both are. However the UK has historically been the better force projecting power and was the world superpower preceding the US, and it still maintains a closer relationship with the sole world super power (the US) right now more so than France has. Giving it a lot more operations experience than France in the last 60 or so years.

                I feel the same way, but that's mostly because I already served for 11 years (medical discharge), and any participation from me at this point would be entirely optional.
                Offer me some food, clean water, and decent clothes, and I might change my mind, though. Depends on how bad things are, though.

      Funnily enough, we have an amphibious SF unit in Poland called "FORMOZA" ("Formosa" is the old name for Taiwan in case you didn't know).

      I have no idea if there was some aspirational motivation behind the naming decision (as in "Look America, you can take us wherever you need") or it was the only sensible acronym they could come up with, but it would be a shame for them to sit out the fight for Taiwan when they're named after it.

      >Poland
      This wiill be a naval/air only fight from the european side/ If when we roll up the invasion has already made massive landings and overun the island we aren't going to be doing our own amphib landings. So, unless there is something I am unaware of in regards to the Polish Navy I think you lads are sitting this one out.

        Of course our navy is virtually non-existent, but it's a fricking moronic take that you can go to war with fricking China and dismiss qualified military personnel willing to help if they don't come with their own aircraft carrier.

        I'm sure the Taiwanese would scoff at Polish land forces garrisoning the island.

                If you can read a map, you can also see that Japan is geographically within range of almost all classes of chinese missiles that will knock out their ports and the japanese people suffering mass starvation and blackouts in result. Due to the islands being completely energy insecure and half-food insecure.

                Now you tell me if potentially millions of japanese casualties and the complete destruction of their economy, demographics, etc. against the strongest military power in the region (who they cannot meaningfully strike back toward its mainland) would be preferable if you were japanese yourself.

                The answer is a resounding no. The polls show that 89% oppose direct military action against China over Taiwan. If their government forces the population to anyway, or if USA forces them, that's a recipe for rock-bottom morale or revolution. Neither of which will be effective at all against China. It will be mass suffering for nothing.

                Or they could simply stay out and continue reaping economic benefits.

                Is this supposed to be a reason NOT to fight the Chinese? If you have an island nation utterly dependant on global sea trade, and a neighbour threatens to start sinking civilian shipping, that's an existential threat. You HAVE to find some way to respond to it, even if it means that millions will die, because your survival as an independent nation hinges on those boats.
                If China ever stops posturing and starts knocking down nearby islands with military force, the absolute last thing Japan wants is having to face it without the US as an ally.

                In the Chinese mind, they believe that yes, Japan should not fight because they would be much happier as a Chinese tributary state like in the old days when they had to cough up treasure and slaves to stay safe every few decades as China sends their envoys. They really think that America is currently subjecting Japan to something far worse than that.

      same way everybody in euro ignored ukraine because if you dont poke the mighty bear you will never be attacked? If you dont stop chinks dead in their tracks they will escalate their arrogance and turn this into another world war. This time centered around the pacific

      BTFO them hard like ziggers in Ukraine and they will think twice about attacking Korea or Nipps or really anybody else around them. Both important western friendly nations with remarkable economic potential.

    the UK and france have their own carrier task groups
    Italy and Spain have decent navies but would need a lot of logistic support
    but even some smaller nice navies could be useful belgium and the dutch come to mind with their new generation of minesweepers.
    the rest would be logistic support, small specialist teams and perhaps a few f-35 and other specialized aircraft

      Probably because he's a big fat slob that made England look like a clown show. Despite that he seemed pretty good. Also Russia apparently has a hate boner for England that I can't explain.

        They participate in RIMPAC pretty often (last year in fact). If they have the political will you can expect them to send a shiip or two as part of a coalition force; they aren't going to be launching independent actions.

    I mean.... Normandy(where the Normans come from) was a country in the early anglosphere called the Angevin empire which stretched from Ireland to southern France and the french had to fight wars to reclaim it

    So the french think they fought a war against themselves to reclaim their own land

    ....the Norman larp just keeps getting weaker and weaker by the day

    At first it seems like a strong larp but it you poke it a bit it shatters

      If a corporation in your country relies on semiconductors, chances are that it buys from Taiwan. Taiwan manufactures about 50% of the world' semiconductor supply and sells to clients in the US, UK, and EU.

          That's an odd opinion to have, since the Chinese are enemies of Europe. They support the invasion by asiatics of a European nation (which is threatening to invade yet more European nations, albeit impotently at this point). They also declared several European countries, among them EU members, to have no legal basis for existing.

          As for who owns those semiconductor producers...well, it's going to be Taiwan or no one at all, because they'll be destroyed should Taiwan be invaded. Then you'll have to either produce your own (lol), buy outdated Chinese ones, or pay a big coward's premium to buy American as their onshore facilities get spun up.

China is a threat to everyone as it fricks with international fishing and trade, and THANKFULLY the US and its allies are there to keep China penned up on its own shores like a good little yellow cuck.

    they have already said that they wont help with taiwan or even help with economically isolating china.
    the US foreign policy establishmnet thought that by helping euope with ukraine, they would get quid pro quo with taiwan.
    they were wrong.
    hilariously wrong.
    so put another notch under the consecutive failure column for US liberal hegemony foreign policy.
    at this point, they have produced nothing but miserable failure for so long that it has to be intentional.

    All the China stronk posters were Russia stronk posters two years ago. They’ll deny it because it’s humiliating to be so wrong but we know it’s true.
    >Thread topic
    All of Europe will be useful in crushing China economically. China won’t be able to trade with Europe because the Europeans don’t want to turn their back on a democratic nation and China will be under blockade anyway.
    The UK/France both have territorial claims in the pacific so they’re the most useful. I expect Poland will want to send a small expeditionary fighting force but will need help getting there.
    >Whose fighting Chyna
    Anglosphere (we numba one!), Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. Others who may join France, Philippines, Poland, India.
    China will be fighting all alone, under a blockade and getting its ports bombed continuously.

        Its almost as if Macron doesn't unilaterally speak for the French people/nation. Also, he didn't indicate that he wouldn't militarily join the a US led defense of Taiwan, just that he wouldn't do it blindly but on his terms...which ya know checks out for how the French have been for the last century at least.
