BRITISH FRIGATE

The announcement that BAE Systems is being awarded a contract to construct three new Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) for the Royal Navy seems to have caught many by surprise.

 

The main justification for the ships is that they will provide work for Scottish shipyards between completion of the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers in the latter half of this decade and commencement of the Global Combat Ship (Type 26) programme.

Report by Iain Ballantyne

WARSPITE LAUNCH

“There are not many warship names that resound across the ages and inspire universal awe and respect, but Warspite is one such. In many ways she was even more remarkable than others that seem to garner greater attention, because she survived two world wars and was very lucky in combat. The battle honours speak for themselves.”

 

With those words Commodore Graeme Little, Naval Base Commander, Devonport concluded his tribute to the most remarkable British warship ever built, on the exact spot where she was created a century earlier.
