I don't think anybody mentioned that Spain's 'second carrier' (kind of) which was recently launched, and to be comissioned next year.  Officially, it's a LHD but can also double as a carrier when the Prncipe de Asturias is being maintained (thus the ski jump); it's the largest ship ever to be built in Spain and is 100% Spanish/Navantia technology.  It has been named after the king of Spain, Juan Carlos I.

Two BPEs (modified) are being built by Navantia for Australia, and Navantia will put a bid for the BPE in South Africa's contest for its future LHD (they've said that the BPE is perfect bu a tad expensive).

I will be taking over this thread, since my last name as gone haywire due to the accent mark in Catalán. :(
My only regrets are that my blood is red and my heart is on the left.
