The Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) provides the investment necessary to deliver the most modern Navy in the world, capable of delivering effect around the globe. The SDSR sets out plans to grow the capability and manpower of the Royal Navy, including a renewed Strategic Deterrent; 100% Aircraft Carrier availability from two carriers; more F-35B jets, with 24 embarked on the Aircraft Carriers from 2023 or earlier; at least 19 Frigates and Destroyers including Type 45 Destroyers, Type 26 Frigates and a new generation of credible general purpose frigates; new Offshore Patrol Vessels and new tanker support ships; and nine New Maritime Patrol Aircraft, working alongside our submarines and frigates to protect the Deterrent and our Aircraft Carriers and keep our seas safe.
