I'm confused. It looks colorized, but those look like current ships.
They are current. Queen Elizabeth has just begun her official service. GBs biggest carrier ever. The 2 islands are a new development, to help ensure survivability of command and control.
HMS VICTORY looks rather small.
No angled deck. That is a surprise.
They are slated to get F-35c's and helos. RN Pilots were (are?) training in Virginia and NC, with USN\USMC pilots to get trained up from their Harrier experience. Reports say the Brits love them, look forward to getting them off the Lizzie and the V.
consider: WWII pilots flew off similar postage stamps, flew a couple hundred miles, inflicted damage, then flew back to...not where it was. somewhere else. maintaining radio silence. moving. find it. in blue water. at night.
