Royal Navy is looking at "a disaggregated fleet that de-couples combat punch from ship platforms."


Basically the concept is to create a navy that isn't reliant on any single ship and instead operate as a networked web of vessels and systems.

What's particularly interesting is the apparent goal is no longer defeating an enemy outright but rather "deterrence by denial" ie "ability to sustain operations just below the level of conflict and impose a cost that the adversary is not willing to accept in the long term."

So instead of the deterrence being the Royal Navy's ability to damage/destroy the enemy, the deterrence is meant to be the enemy being unable to destroy all the RN's (small number of) ships.

So basically the RN's goal is to act as a kind of fleet in being by deterring enemy from taking armed action in the first place.
