HMS ARGYLL Depolys on ATP(N)
Pictured is HMS Argyll with an idyllic scene of English countryside behind her, rolling hills and trees.
Based in Plymouth, HMS Argyll is the longest-serving Type 23 frigate in the Royal Navy. Built in the late 1980s at the Yarrow Yard in Scotstoun on the Clyde (now BAE Systems), she was commissioned in 1991.
Following an extensive £20 million refit in Rosyth during 2009 to 2010, HMS Argyll emerged as one of the most up-to-date and capable frigates in the Fleet, with her structure preserved and her weapons and sensors significantly enhanced.
Over the last 4 years HMS Argyll has conducted three successful deployments to the Gulf, South Atlantic and most recently the Caribbean and North Atlantic. Her Atlantic Patrol Task (North) deployment to the Caribbean and North Atlantic involved Defence Engagement (including hosting His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales), hurricane disaster relief in the UK overseas territory of Bermuda and a series of drugs busts that captured 77 million pounds of narcotics.
Prior to her last deployment HMS Argyll was fitted with the advanced Artisan radar and, following a period of UK tasking, she will enter a deep maintenance in summer 2015 to further enhance her equipment and maintain her material state
