The Age Of Steam

First sighted at Defense Tech. Video stolen from the Mirror:

Russian ship cruising through Channel is so close
it can be seen from The White Cliffs of Dover

And the rest of Fleet Street trying to stoke fear while mocking the old smoker. The Torygraph, from sources:
One Royal Navy source said: “All their ships look shiny on the outside, but are pretty horrid on the inside. You only have to look at the smoke she’s belching out to see not all is well.

“We have had people on board Russian ships in the last 10 years or so and it’s always a bit of a shock. The conditions inside are pretty manky.”
There'll always be an England, we guess.

Old fashioned oil-fired boilers feeding steam turbines. You'd think the mid-life upgrade would have included transition to gas.

Wait. 'Manky'?

I'm feeling a little manky today myself...
