HMS Invincible was the first of three light aircraft carriers ordered by the British Government in the 1970s following the cancellation of the CVA-01 fleet carriers. The three ships of the Invincible class – HMS Invincible, HMS Illustrious and HMS Ark Royal – each displaced 22,000 tonnes. In normal conditions each could carry up to twelve Sea Harrier FRS1/FA2 or Harrier GR.7/9 aircraft and 10 Sea King helicopters, although the number of each type could be increased or decreased depending on mission requirements. The ships were powered by four Rolls Royce Olympus gas turbine engines, which together could develop up to 97,000shp and could propel the ships at speeds of up to 28 knots.
All three ships have seen active service, and Illustrious is probably best remembered for her role alongside HMS Hermes as one of the two carriers of the British Task Force during the Falklands War. Her role during this conflict also put an end to plans to sell her to the Royal Australian Navy as a replacement for HMAS Melbourne. HMS Invincible also took place in operations over Yugoslavia and Iraq during the 1990s. HMS Invincible was decommissioned in 2005 and finally struck off the reserve list in 2010. She was sold to a Turkish ship recycling firm and scrapped in 2011.

HMS Sheffield was the second Royal Navy ship to be named after the city of Sheffield in Yorkshire. She was a Type 42 Guided Missile Destroyer laid down by Vickers Shipbuilding and Engineering at Barrow-in-Furness on 15 January 1970, launched on 10 June 1971 and commissioned on 16 February 1975.
An explosion during construction killed two dockyard workers and damaged a section of hull which was replaced with a section from an identical ship, ARA Hércules, being built for the Argentine Navy. The ship was part of the task force sent to the Falkland Islands during the Falklands War. She was struck by an Exocet air-launched anti-ship missile from a Super Etendard aircraft belonging to the Argentine Navy on 4 May 1982 and foundered on 10 May 1982.
One of the most important weapons used in marine warfare was the mine. In order to bring this weapon close to the enemy shipping lanes, the German Navy used special submarines. The type VII D was a lengthened sub-variant of the successful type VII C battle submarine. To enable it to transport and lay type SMA moored mines a section with five mine silos each holding 3 SMA mines was incorporated behind the conning tower.Product Code: 05009 (2006) Rare Item.

Surcouf was designed as an "underwater cruiser", intended to seek and engage in surface combat.For reconnaissance, she carried a Besson MB.411 observation float plane in a hangar built abaft of the conning tower; for combat, she was armed with eight 550 mm and four 400 mm torpedo tubes and twin 203mm/50 Modèle 1924 guns in a pressure-tight turret forward of the conning tower.
By August 1940, the British completed Surcouf's refit and turned her over to the Free French Navy (Forces Navales Françaises Libres, FNFL) for convoy patrol.
The Surcouf was sunk on 18 February 1942. The Surcouf was rammed at night in the Caribbean by the American freighter SS Thompson Lykes.
