Suggestion to turn HMS Prince of Wales into “floating platform”

The British Ministry of Defense and the Royal Navy is expected to tell Prime Minister David Cameron that it will be cheaper to turn the planned HMS Prince of Wales aircraft carrier into a “floating platform” without any planes, rather than scrap the project altogether.

Turning it into a platform to ferry troops and helicopters would have £1 billion in construction costs and £7 billion by buying less F-35s.
