The Aircraft Carrier Alliance is a partnership of BAE Systems, Babcock International, Thales Group and the UK Ministry of Defence. Together with Rosyth Dockyard, they are building the Queen Elizabeth-class of aircraft carriers for the Royal Navy.[1] Along with Rosyth, five other shipyards are involved in the build process, including Appledore Shipbuilders, Cammell Laird (formerly Birkenhead), Govan Shipbuilders, HMNB Portsmouth and A&P Tyne.[1]
