        From aircraft carriers and assault ships to small patrol boats and survey vessels, the Royal Navy can call upon an arsenal of warships and weaponry to meet any challenge thrown up by global crises – be they man-made or acts of God.

        • HMS Albion

          HMS Albion, along with her sister ship HMS Bulwark, is one of the Navy’s two amphibious assault ships with a single aim: to deliver the punch of the Royal Marines ashore by air and by sea. We do that using landing craft from our cavernous loading dock – the ship can flood her stern to allow the boats in and out – and helicopters from our vast flight deck.

        • HMS Iron Duke

          HMS Iron Duke is nearing completion of her 8 weeks of Operational Sea Training alongside in Devonport, Plymouth and the waters of the English Channel.

        • HMS Monmouth

          HMS Monmouth, the ‘Black Duke’ – the ship which has more battle honours than any other serving warship.

        • HMS Richmond

          HMS Richmond is among the most tried and tested in the Fleet, having pounded Saddam Hussein’s defences on the Al Faw peninsula in the opening hours of the 2003 Iraq campaign, to providing vital aid in the Caribbean after Hurricane Ivan – the tenth strongest storm in history – steamrollered through a succession of islands in 2004.

        • HMS Daring

          HMS Daring is the first of the Navy’s six £1bn Type 45 destroyers and in early 2012 she was the first of class to deploy with a seven-month stint in the Gulf protecting shipping and working with regional partners, spending 139 days at sea, visiting 12 different countries, and travelling more than 34,643 nautical miles.

        • HMS York

          HMS York was Britain’s youngest Type 42 destroyer – and also the fastest (over 34 knots to be precise – just short of 40mph). Launched in 1982 and accepted into service in March 1985, the ship celebrated 25 years in service in 2010. The spring of her birthday year was spent in the Falklands – a busy deployment that saw her travel more than 25,000 nautical miles.

          HMS York
        • HMS Brocklesby

          HMS Brocklesby is one of eight Hunt-class Mine Countermeasures Vessels (MCMVs) based in Portsmouth. Built by Vosper Thornycroft from glass re-inforced plastic, Brocklesby was launched in 1982 and commissioned 13 months later. The third Ship to bear the name, she won her most recent battle honours clearing sea-lanes in to Umm Qasr in Iraq during Operation Telic in 2003.
