The HMS Queen Elizabeth, the Royal Navy’s biggest aircraft carrier, is finally being delivered to the Portsmouth Naval Base.

The 70,000-ton ship made the news recently for a security breach, after a photographer landed his drone on the ship.

The warship won’t be fully operational until 2023, but is already being touted as the most advanced ship in the Royal Navy. Its construction cost over $7.5 billion.
