navy. since we dont really need one.
but what comes to boats and [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W%C3%A4rtsil%C3%A4-Sulzer_RTA96-C"]large diesel engines[/URL].. and the ones like in Leclerc.
we can [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finnish_Maritime_Cluster"]produce[/URL].

lol.. now when we get that genesis class passenger liner done.. perhaps we could do something
with similar tonnage for our navy.. :b

Wouldnt suprise me..... USS JFK came to Ireland in 03/04ish and was too big to dock in Dublin Port so it was off coast in DunLaoire, ferrying to and from the mainlaind.... Seen numerous cruise liners do the same.... Some size... Dublin port has being a port since 988ad, and its funny to think the ships now are too big to fit into its relatively shallow waters...

Its an intresting tank........the Leclerc

I know this is off-topic.......but in previous posts i have stated.........the French are not as commited to the war on terror as much as they could be.....and their deployment in Afghanistan is a half hearted one........but i found this info the other day and it shows French deployments around the world........with this amount of troops deloyed in my book the French are forgiven..........have a look......[url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deployments_of_the_French_military[/url]
