The Royal Navy's 6 Type 45 Destroyers in port together (Image: Phil Harris/Daily Mirror)

Citar
In 1985 the Navy had four aircraft carriers, two assault ships, 15 destroyers and 41 frigates.

Today, it has one aircraft carrier which leaks, has no planes and does not come into service until 2020, and a second which is being built and which critics fear may never enter service.

Two assault ships face being scrapped, the six destroyers are all in dock and 13 ageing frigates, which start to be retired in 2023.

HMS Ocean returns from final deployment as commissioned Royal Navy ship


HMS Ocean alongside at naval base Devonport

Royal Navy helicopter carrier HMS Ocean returned home to naval base Devonport on December 19, concluding her final deployment as a commissioned Royal Navy ship.

The ship was scheduled to enter Devonport on December 20, welcomed by families and friends, but a forecast of thick fog brought her final operational homecoming forward by a day.

Ocean, which will be decommissioned next year, left Plymouth at the end of August to serve as flagship of NATO’s Standing Maritime Group 2 in the Mediterranean.

The ship was re-tasked and diverted from her NATO duties at the beginning of September to take vital humanitarian aid to British Overseas Territories hit by hurricane Irma before returning to resume her role as the NATO group flagship and take part in multi-national exercises.

On board during her deployment were Royal Marines from Taunton-based 40 Commando, helicopters from 820, 845 and 847 Naval Air Squadrons based in Culdrose and Yeovilton, and RAF Chinook helicopters.

The crew of HMS Ocean are now on leave to celebrate Christmas.

Lord West of Spithead has urged the government to retain the about to be replaced Offshore Patrol Vessel fleet.

Lord West of Spithead said dureing a House of Lords debate on UK border surveillance:

“My Lords, the Minister makes rather light of the real problem. There is no doubt whatever that all the departments and assets looking after our territorial seas and exclusive economic zone are not being co-ordinated at the moment.

I know that there are plans to move forward, but it is not being done. The intelligence from the NMIC, which was established some five years or so ago, is very good but we are not co-ordinating assets, and we do not have enough assets. However, my question relates to our British Overseas Territories, each of which has territorial seas and exclusive economic zones.

Indeed, we have responsibility for the largest area of ocean of any country in the world. In that circumstance, does it not make sense not to get rid of the offshore patrol vessels, which are relatively new, when the new ​ones come online, and to use those to look after these vast areas of ocean that at the moment are not being properly protected?”

Baroness Williams of Trafford responded, incorrectly:
The noble Lord makes a valid point about our offshore patrol vessels—and there are no plans to get rid of them. However, my point, which I hope I was not making lightly, was that the most effective work we can do at the border is intelligence-led work that is successful at pinpointing areas of high risk.

Recently retired HMS Severn is being replaced with a new batch River class offshore patrol vessel after only 14 years of service, all of her sister ships will be too.

New Offshore Patrol Vessels were ordered to fill a gap in orders after the second carrier and before the Type 26 frigates begin construction. Critics, the UK Defence Journal included, have raised concerns that they’re severely overpriced and lack important features, such as a helicopter hangar that other, cheaper vessels of the same type have.

 

The order and construction of the new OPV’s helped sustain hundreds of skilled jobs on the Clyde until the Type 26 build begins, ensuring that the yards remain viable.

The new Offshore Patrol Vessels were also described at a Defence Select Committee meeting a vessels “the Royal Navy does not want or need”.

The vessels will be used by the Royal Navy to undertake various tasks including border protection roles, including anti-smuggling, anti-piracy, fisheries patrols, and immigration law enforcement.

The UK Royal Navy’s second Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier was officially launched on 21 December, achieving another milestone for the construction programme.

The future HMS Prince of Wales , originally planned to launch in 2018, was floated out ahead of schedule during a ceremony held at BAE Systems’ Rosyth facility in Scotland, officials said.
Under current plans, sea trials for the 65,000-tonne ship are expected to start in 2019.

Babcock announces industry team for Type 31 frigate bid



Babcock's Arrowhead frigate design is a 120 meter general-purpose frigate the company believes it can build for the Royal Navy under the £250 million price limit set by the defense ministry.

UK defense contractor Babcock will be leading a team of industry partners in a bid for the Royal Navy’s new £1.25 billion Type 31e general purpose light frigate program, the company announced on Monday.

According to the announcement, Babcock and Thales have joined forces with BMT, Harland & Wolff and Ferguson Marine to form ‘Team 31’.

Babcock will act as the overall program lead, whilst Thales will have overall responsibility for the development of the mission system solution. Babcock and BMT will use their experience in the development of designs for both naval and commercial vessels to produce a Type 31 design.

Babcock said the make-up of the team would  ensure that the economic benefits of the program are shared across the UK. Ferguson Marine on the Clyde, Harland & Wolff in Belfast and the Babcock facilities in Fife and Devon will all have key roles to play, while much of the equipment provided by Thales and others will support jobs across the UK.

“Team 31 will allow Babcock and Thales to take forward the key lessons from the Aircraft Carrier Alliance and apply them in a new and highly capable team with Harland & Wolff, BMT and Ferguson Marine,” Babcock CEO Archie Bethel said.

“Thales UK is delighted to be working with Babcock and our partners as part of Team 31. We recognise the diversity of roles anticipated for Type31e and, together, we will create and exciting, innovative and flexible capability for the Royal Navy based on the best of UK and international technologies in an open-system architecture that will ensure long term value for money,” Victor Chavez, CEO of Thales UK said.

The defense ministry expects the first ships to be in service by 2023, built under a price cap of £250M each for the first batch of five frigates.

The Type 31 frigate will replace five of the Royal Navy’s Type 23 frigates. The other eight Type 23s are already set to be replaced by the upcoming Type 26 class.

Como o Brasil já está com a mão na massa, HMS Ocean, e o HMS Albion será encostado daqui a uns anos, tudo indica que a opção a ser escolhida será a III, quanto a mim a menos gravosa das três, mas a que não prevê a desativação dos Wildcats que nos interessam.

One of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary’s largest vessels, the combined fleet stores ship, RFA Fort Victoria has begun its latest refit in Merseyside. 

The refit will be conducted by Cammell Laird supported by a number of local and national contractors including interior specialists Trimline Ltd. of Southampton. This is the third refit in a row for this vessel to be led by Cammell Laird, the last occurring three years ago. The main highlight of the refit will be the installation of a double-hull which will improve her international compliance and upgrades to allow her to better replenish and support the new Queen Elizabeth class carriers. These upgrades continue plans to keep the vessel in service until the late 2020s.

Construction of First Type 26 / City-class Frigate Progressing Well
Posted On Saturday, 27 January 2018 18:57



 Guto Bebb MP, the recently appointed UK Minister for Defence Procurement, visited BAE Systems’ Clyde shipyards and witnessed progress on the Type 26 programme as production started on the second hull section of GLASGOW, the first of the City Class frigates.


BAE Systems has commenced manufacture on the second hull section of the future HMS Glasgow. This will house the main machinery space, aviation stores for embarked helicopters and a recreational area for the ships’ 59 senior rates. BAE Systems picture.

 Manufacture of the first Type 26, GLASGOW, began in July 2017 and is progressing well with production starting on the second zone of the ship. The first hull section is already taking shape at the Govan yard and the second houses the main machinery space, aviation stores for embarked helicopters and a recreational area for the ships’ 59 senior rates.

 With a cutting edge platform design and the ability to adapt to the requirements of different navies, the Type 26 design has been proposed for the Australian Government’s anti-submarine warfare frigate programme (SEA5000) and the Canadian Surface Combatant programme (CSC).

 The Type 26 is an advanced Anti-Submarine Warfare frigate that will provide essential protection to our nuclear deterrent and aircraft carriers, building on the pedigree of the Royal Navy’s current Type 23 frigates.

 Its flexible design will allow its weapon systems to be adapted throughout its lifespan to counter future threats. The Type 26 benefits from the latest advances in digital technologies, including 3D and virtual reality, which ensures that the ship’s design is refined earlier in the process.

 The Type 26 will replace the UK’s Type 23 frigates, with the first set to enter service in the early 2020s and the last remaining in service beyond the middle of the century.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said:

“As the Rock casts its shadow over the flight deck of our world-class aircraft carrier, Gibraltar rightfully marks HMS Queen Elizabeth’s first overseas stop as she refuels and takes on supplies before continuing her sea trials. I’m sure our friends in Gibraltar will be proud to see our future flagship sail through British waters into their famous port.”

Captain Jerry Kyd, the Commanding Officer of HMS Queen Elizabeth, said:

“It is a great privilege for me to be bringing our new aircraft carrier into Gibraltar for her first ever overseas port visit.

Gibraltar is the perfect stop for HMS Queen Elizabeth as we conduct our flying trials in the waters off the Iberian Peninsula. And our visit also underlines the incredibly rich history and special relationship the Royal Navy and Royal Marines share with Gibraltar.

I am personally very lucky to have visited the Rock many times in my naval career, but well over a quarter of my sailors have not yet experienced what, for the Royal Navy, is something of an iconic run ashore.”
