The design of the former British jump jet carriers sacrified the until then Fairey Gannet AEW's solitarely reliing on the AEW of the NATO partners.
This prooved critical when RN took on the Falklands alone hence without AEW of the NATO partner,
and seemingly have the Brits duplicated the detail on this newbuild :-o
