The number of job losses announced this week in the defence industry could be higher than first reports have suggested.
When they were signed off by Labour the project cost was £3.5 billion, but MoD sources now acknowledge that the cost may top £6 billion.
Emotional tributes have been paid to a third army reserve soldier who died from injuries sustained during SAS selection training.
A Ministry of Defence spokesman has said:
The MoD acknowledges the lifting of the anonymity order in respect of Marine A.
We presented our security concerns in open court, and an independent legal process has now concluded; we respect the decision of the court.
Three women have received £100,000 each in compensation after claiming that marching alongside their taller male colleagues caused them injuries as they had to lengthen their stride, the Mail on Sunday reports.
RAF policy now states that female recruits should not be forced to stride more than 27 inches (69cm) but the three claimants endured strides of up to 30 inches (76cm).
The women told the newspaper that the practice resulted in pelvic and spinal injuries so severe that one of them said she could not dress herself without assistance.
The Ministry of Defence confirmed it agreed a settlement in August and said that the RAF "takes the welfare of its recruits very seriously and has reviewed its recruit training practices".
The actions of the four British soldiers who have admitted being involved in a fight with an off-duty policeman in New York, will go on their records and "affect their careers," their battalion said.
The Royal Scots Borderers, an infantry battalion of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, where all four soldiers serve, made the comments after the men appeared in court for offences relating to the incident.
A battalion spokeswoman said: "Those who have been charged in relation to criminal offences will have that recorded on their record and it will affect their careers.
"Those who have had their charges dropped may still be liable to administrative action at the discretion of their commanding officer."
The four soldiers - one British national and three Fiji nationals - were on a military rugby team trip when the row broke out in August.
Commenting on the four British soldiers who have admitted being involved in a fight with an off-duty policeman in New York, the Ministry of Defence warned that those who fall short of Army standards face disciplinary action and could be discharged.
– Ministry of Defence spokesman
All those who are found to fall short of the Army's high standards or who are found to have committed an offence under the Armed Forces Act are dealt with administratively (up to and including discharge) or through the discipline process, as appropriate.
We have a common law and Data Protection Act duty to protect the personal information of our employees and, as such, we are not prepared to release any personal information relating to this case.
Four British soldiers have been sentenced to community service and fines after admitting their role in a fight with an off-duty policeman outside a New York bar.
The incident occurred during a military rugby team trip in August.
Criminal complaints say the officer was punched and his mobile phone was taken.
Ratu-losefo Yavala yesterday pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault and petit larceny, while Thomas Shute admitted misdemeanor assault, court records show .
Mosese Kurulala and Iliakini Raderua pleaded guilty to violations, which are not crimes under US law.
The Ministry of Defence has been contacted for comment.
Former Defence Secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind said there is a "serious question mark" over the Government's plan to plug the gap left by Army cuts by increasing the numbers of part-time soldiers.
The Conservatives have pledged to cut the size of the Army by 20,000 while doubling the size of the Army Reserves to 30,000 by 2018.
Former Tory cabinet minister Rifkind told the Telegraph: "The plan is very ambitious. There is a serious question mark about whether it's deliverable. I can certainly see it as being very challenging."
Convicted hackers could be signed up to the UK's new cyber force despite their criminal past, Defence Secretary Philip Hammond indicated.
Speaking to BBC2's Newsnight, he said: "Each individual case would be looked at on its merits.
"The conviction would be examined in terms of how long ago it was, how serious it was, what sort of sentence had followed. So I can't rule it out."
The British public "expects" its soldiers to be properly equipped before going into battle and legal cases against the military come about because the MoD has failed to prepare them, a human rights lawyer has told Daybreak.
Gene Matthews said soldiers "should be able to take the steps that are needed" to win, but emphasised the military had a responsibility to make sure the armed forces were using the right equipment.
Mr Matthews was speaking after an influential think tank warned British military operations could be undermined by human rights laws and health and safety red tape.
However, report author Tom Tugendhat said his investigation had been about protecting vulnerable young men in the battlefield.
"Young men, who are going through really difficult decisions, minute after minute, hour after hour...should they be second guessed by a European court in Strasbourg, five, ten years from now?"
