HMS Lancaster's role

Type 23 frigate, HMS Lancaster is a multi-role warship, which is equally adept at tackling drug-busting operations in the Caribbean as it is carrying out maritime security patrols East of Suez. The Royal Navy’s Type 23 frigates are the core of our frontline fleet simply because of their utility and all-round operational effectiveness.

HMS Lancaster is capable of deploying with a Wildcat maritime attack helicopter, which makes her ideal for our most challenging defence engagement and security operations.
