Britain to sign deal for biggest ever UK aircraft carriers
The UNited Kingdom is set to develop some gigantic aircraft carriers, the largest ever seen from the UK.
The Ministry of Defence is poised to sign contracts worth around £3 billion for two 65,000-ton ships.
The Queen Elizabeth and the Prince of Wales will be built at Govan in Glasgow and Rosyth in Fife, as well as Portsmouth and Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria.
Measuring more than 300 yards in length, the ships will have a flight deck the size of three football pitches and space for 40 aeroplanes.
