As a general rule, the interesting part of these ISOT type scenarios is not in the battles (yes, 2020 weapon systems beat the shit out of 1940 weapon systems; bfd), but in the complications the moderns face when cut off from logistical support.(If it made it back to Blighty or mostly back but the fuel reserves are exhausted, that'd be an interesting story: how long can HMS Queen Elizabeth con the Axis into thinking it can sail towards them and isn't just going to sit in the sea?)
None of here escorts are joining here, because i heave heard the RN wants to have a escort of "two Type 45 destroyers, two Type 23 frigates, a nuclear submarine, a Tide-class tanker and RFA Fort Victoria".So ... it's 2022. HMS Queen Elizabeth is sailing south to deter Argentina from making (yet another) try at the Falkland Islands. And then she sails into a storm and emerges in 1940, just after the Fall of France.
What next ...?
Indeed. Since The Final Countdown variations on this concept have been explored so often that it has exhausted its potential. Those ISOT scenarios ought to bring something new to the table, and this one doesn't, leaving aside how trite it is to revisit "Britain's Finest Hour" for the umpteenth time.I don't mean to be a dick but hasn't this idea been done to death? Hell you yourself did it more then once with Nazi Victory Aircraft carriers.

HMSQNLZ is going to need a dedicated F-44 and F-76 refinery all to itself.Of course, 1940 Britain doesn't have a significant gas production capability.
