Queen Elizabeth Class (CVF)

The two-island STOVL variant proposed by the Alliance industry team. The 70t-load deck-edge aircraft lift between the islands is in the lowered position. An AMS S1850 3D air search radar is mounted on the forward island. A BAE Sampson targeting radar is on the aft FLYCO island. A crane for lifting downed aircraft is installed to the starboard side of the FLYCO island.
