Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    the one that had a paint job recently was Torbay, for a trial while she was at AUTEC. They found that the paint had faded since it was applied so it perhaps wasn't the same shade that had been tested in the lab. It's all part of an ongoing effort of signature reduction for submarines, whether that's acoustic, electromagnetic or visual.
     
  4. It sounds as though they bought the cheap paint.Does anybody have a current picture of Torbay in her faded blue?
     
  5. I will get a picture of it for you. If you look at www.royalnavy.mod.uk they have some pictures of it
     
  6. i have seen her when the paint was still wet but not recently.

    I seem to remember some of the papers trying to make a big deal over offending sensibilities by Opossum returning to Blockhouse sporting that paint job. Personally? I thought it was flippin' great.

  18. Learning to communicate would be a good start to your naval career. Might find it easier after that.
