Comparative size of the Type 45s

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:

  1. I have wanted to see a picture comparing the 45s to the 42s, or 23s... and then when checking Google Earth today I looked at Portsmouth dockyard to the west of the new ship building sheds and you can se the bow section of a type 45 next to a type 23. It is then that you realise just how big they are going to be...

    Has anyone got a picture of HMS Daring next to a 42?
  2. Sorry couldn't find one of the T45 next to a T42 matey, but found this picture of one next to a T23 here :


    Thanks to NavyMatters for the pic :)

    Hope it helps :)
  3. Nice pic but incorrect… no Phalanx or Harpoon on the real thing.
  4. Its a size comparison picture.
    Care to do better for the OP ? :roll:
  5. Nah…
  6. We did a comparison side-by-side when we did our T45 cutaway a couple of years ago. From memory Daring's slightly longer than Dreadnought (the battleship not the boat).
  7. I drive up South Street in Glasgow fairly regularly and so them on the blocks. That Mainmast has to be seen to be believed.
