HMS Dauntless' Role

Using the fearsome Sea Viper anti-air missile system, HMS Dauntless defends her fellow ships from enemy attack. She was the first of the Daring class to fire the Sea Viper missile, which travels at over 2500 mph.

What really sets the Daring class apart is its versatility. Outside of her air defence role, HMS Dauntless has the ability to carry out a huge range of war-fighting and constabulary duties, from counter-narcotics boarding operations, acting as a task group flagship or providing humanitarian aid and disaster relief.
