HMS Queen Elizabeth is the largest warship ever built for the Royal Navy and capable of carrying up to forty aircraft. She was laid down on 2 July 2009 and launched on 4 July 2014, and is scheduled for commissioning in 2017, with operational capability from 2020.
I’m not sure whether the build can be speeded up if the global situation demanded action. Somehow I doubt it.
The laying down chart hints at slow progress through 2016/17 with tr Pluto trine Saturn; and quite a concentration of influences, not all good, around late 2018/19/20. A challenging, pressured and maybe stuck Solar Arc Pluto opposition Sun; an uncertain, panicky tr Neptune opposition Saturn in 2019/20 and a ruthless, risky tr Pluto trine Mars in 2019/20.
The launch chart has a Cardinal Grand Cross of Sun opposition Pluto square Uranus opposition Mars – and is bumping its way with difficulty and probably multiple crises through the next several years as these aspects come exact by Solar Arc and transit. 2017/18 look fraught; 2018/19 jarring and in disarray. 2023 could be a collision of sorts.
HMS Prince of Wales which is also due for operational capability in 2020 was laid down on 26 May 2011 and looks to be having a marginally easier steam through with good luck in 2017, though a few tensions erupting in 2018.
