Great Britain is experiencing a certain inferiority complex, because in the line of the navy, London today will lose to many countries of the world. About this in an interview FAN said a well-known Russian military expert, captain of the first rank of the reserve Vasily Dandykin.
Daily Express reporters said the largest navy, led by flagship aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth, embarked on a “seven-month world odyssey” to showcase “the country’s protection, diplomacy and prosperity.” Ten British ships carry 3.7 thousand sailors, pilots and marines. The flotilla must take part in the Strike Warrior maneuvers and visit several dozen countries.
However, in the waters off North Scotland, the British flotilla was intercepted by two Russian ships. The British lament that this is the first time in 40 years. Analysts suggested that the Russians might be interested in the fifth generation F-35B fighters based on the aircraft carrier.
“The British flotilla was intercepted by Russian spy ships after going to sea for the first time in 40 years,” the PolitRussia reports.
It is also noted that reconnaissance ships, presumably belonging to the Northern Fleet of the Russian Navy, were spotted by the US Navy P8 patrol aircraft. Military experts believe that the ships of the Russian fleet will accompany the British aircraft carrier group throughout the seven-month voyage.

As military expert Vasily Dandykin told the Federal News Agency in an interview with the Federal News Agency, the British ships will have to meet with the Russian Navy more than once in the future.
“Russia does not hide the fact that it has reconnaissance ships, including new ones – Project 18280. It is their regular job – to know what’s what. Moreover, Great Britain is our neighbor in the North Atlantic, and this is the area of responsibility of the Russian Northern Fleet. I think that we will still hear such statements from the British, given the fact that the British flotilla will one way or another collide in the Mediterranean with our ships from the task force, which is based in the Syrian port of Tartus. There they will be able to see our submarine, too, ”said the FAN interlocutor.

Also, the captain of the first rank of the reserve said that Great Britain had developed an inferiority complex due to the fact that England had lost the status of a maritime superpower, which the United States, China and the growing power of Russia claim today.
“As for the UK campaign itself, I can say that this is a PR campaign. In addition, the British want to send two of their ships from the navy to the Black Sea in order to support Ukraine in this way. This is how London intends to show that Britain is still an empire. But where is England and where is the Black Sea? This is no longer the military campaign that was at Margaret Thatcherwhen the British dealt with Argentina. Now the situation is different – Great Britain is experiencing a certain inferiority complex, because in terms of the navy, London is now clearly inferior to the United States and China. Now even France and Japan have more opportunities to build up their navies than Britain. So the British want to show that there is still gunpowder in the flasks. For this, they assembled a flotilla on the bottom of the barrel. And the main message: Great Britain is the main vanguard in the fight against Russia. Therefore, we are waiting for new messages about “insidious” Russian submarines and aircraft that will intercept the British fleet. And all because of the fact that the Russian Navy, despite all the obstacles, is gaining strength from year to year, ”summed up Vasily Dandykin.
Earlier, the Federal News Agency reported that the Russian Navy frigate “Admiral Makarov” armed with “Calibers” entered the Mediterranean.
