Type 45 Destroyer HMS Dragon Enters Portsmouth for the First Time
HMS Dragon, the Royal Navy's latest Type 45 destroyer, enters her new home of Portsmouth in Hampshire for the first time.
The 7, 500 tonne vessel has today been formally accepted from shipbuilder BAE Systems and will now undergo a series of tests before being declared ready for operations.
Armed with the world-leading Sea Viper missile defence system, she is able to defend against multiple attacks from even the most sophisticated aircraft and anti-ship missiles, simultaneously approaching from any direction and at supersonic speeds.
Armed Forces Minister Nick Harvey, attending today's ceremony to mark HMS Dragon's acceptance off contract, said:
This is another success for the Type 45 programme and further evidence of how we are investing in cutting edge equipment which will form part of Future Force 2020. HMS Dragon is the fourth of a class of six ships which together will form a formidable fleet and will play an important part in allowing the Royal Navy to protect our interests around the world.
HMS Dragon, which is affiliated to the city of Cardiff, is one of the six new Type 45 warships being built for the Royal Navy. She was launched in November 2008 at Govan shipyard in Glasgow and has since been carrying out sea trials in Scottish waters
