Hms Lancaster at Sea

Pictured is HMS Lancasterat sea.
HMS Lancaster was built on the Clyde as the fourth of the Type 23 frigates joining the Fleet in 1992. This versatile multi-role ship can typically be deployed drug-busting in the Caribbean or East of Suez on maritime security patrols.
All the ships in the Type 23 class are named after Dukes, in this case, the Duke of Lancaster - who is also better known as Her Majesty the Queen. The British Monarch is the ship's very special sponsor and Her Majesty takes a keen interest in Lancaster's activities around the globe.
In 2013, HMS Lancaster spent seven months in the North Atlantic and Caribbean, successfully seizing drugs worth a total street value of £160m. During six raids, the ship intercepted 1.2 tonnes of cocaine and almost 1.5 tonnes of cannabis. 23 drug runners were detained, effectively disrupting the distribution of drugs throughout the region.
Lancaster visited all six of the British Overseas Territories in the region and the Commonwealth states of Jamaica, Belize and Barbados while also making calls into the islands of Curacao, Martinique and visiting Columbia in South America. The ship also took part in Exercise Unitas a multi-national exercise involving 16 warships and submarines from nine nations ranging from Canada to Chile.
On returning from her deployments HMS Lancaster is often greeted, wherever possible, by a Lancaster bomber of the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, which provides a fly past over Portsmouth harbour. *** Local Caption *** Pictured is HMS Lancaster afer her last Replenishment at sea (RAS) with RFA Gold Rover

HMS Queen Elizabeth conducts vital system tests off the coast of Scotland

Pictured is an aerial view of HMS Queen Elizabeth, HMS Iron Duke (centre) and HMS Sutherland (right).
The carrier is shown conducting vital system tests off the coast of Scotland.
HMS Queen Elizabeth left Rosyth, where she has been under construction since 2014, to conduct sea trials.
Type 23 frigates Sutherland and Iron Duke joined the 65, 000-tonne aircraft carrier, along with Merlin Mk2 helicopters of the Fleet Air Arm, to guard the seas as the trials get under way.
The Queen Elizabeth Class Carriers are the biggest warships ever built for the Royal Navy - four acres of sovereign territory, deployable across the globe to serve the United Kingdom on operations for 50 years.
HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales will be the most advanced warships in the Royal Navy fleet.
They are the future flagships of the nation. Initially the ships will carry helicopters. The vast flight deck and hangar can accommodate any helicopter in Britains military inventory.
From 2020, however, our punch will be delivered by the F35 Lightning II, the worlds most advanced stealth fighter-bomber

HMS Iron Duke Fitted with Artisan Radar

Portsmouth-based HMS Iron Duke returns to sea after a 16-month upgrade and now boasts one of the most advanced radars in the world (top).
The Type 23 frigate is the first Royal Navy ship to be fitted with Artisan a 3D radar which is five times better than the old version it replaces.
She left the Naval Base today (Sunday) to begin an intensive few months of sea trials.
As part of a £100m programme Artisan will be fitted to all the Navy's 13 Type 23s as well as the two future aircraft carriers.
Artisan could also be the principal air radar of the Type 26 combat ship, successor to the 23s, which enter service next decade.
The radar boasts some impressive statistics. It can spot something as small as a cricket or tennis ball travelling at three times the speed of sound more than 25 kilometres (15 miles) away.
It's built out of the same lightweight carbon glass fibre materials found on a Formula 1 car and weighs just 700kg (1, 540lb).
It can track up to 800 targets simultaneously if theyre 200 metres from Iron Duke or 200 kilometres (125 miles) away.
Put another way Iron Duke could sit in her home base and simultaneously follow aircraft flying into Heathrow, Gatwick, Southampton, Stansted, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cardiff, Exeter and Birmingham airports.
On top of accuracy it's packed with anti-jamming features it isn't affected by interference from mobile phone signals and can pick out targets against a background of electronic noise and interference.
Iron Duke's upgrade carried out by BAE Systems in Portsmouth - also included work on her other weapons systems and combat computer. Improvements to her ventilation mean she is able to operate more efficiently in hot climates
