"...........The project will include the overhaul of the vessels' engines and an upgrade of crew accommodation".


haha that sounds about right. . . the accom was good enough whilst it was in RN service, but it has to be upgraded before transfer to the Pakistani Navy.

Didn't even realise it had been sold off.

I remember doing an exercise with it before it was handed over to the RN.

God I'm old!!!!!! Pass me some pills!!!! I'm depressed now.

Sold to the Pakistanis, eh.

Where does the article say anything about the Pakistani Navy?

Matt, do you read this stuff?
Does anybody?

As for the accommodation upgrade, WTF not? Accommodation is never good enough, it is a thirty year old spec and the new owners (not the Pakistani Navy) appear to be paying for it. Sale, not transfer.

Harumph.

Great headline!!! Not!!!

Why call it HMS and add more fuel to the fire?
_________________
The headline acutely says (as above) 'Ex-HMS' which it is, so the headline is factual.

What fuel to the fire are you referring to???

Does anybody actually read this stuff. It reminds me of one of the quotes by Sherlock Holmes ' we look but we don't see' ! 8)
