Pompey News: "Royal Navy Shadows Russian Warship Off Scottish Coast"

When did it become a "visit"?

The Jocks may have a point but the salient one is that what we still have is spread too thinly. Just a thought but wasn't the ASW gap created by the loss of the Nimrods supposed to have been covered by a Frigate?

What the hell is a 'signature turn of a Type45'? Do they turn in a different way to other ships then or am I missing something?

Don't they have DTAPS for ASW? They did at least a few years ago.

These new-fangled ships can apparently sign their own name in their wake as well as shoot down cricket-balls travelling three times the speed of light.

Not at the same time. Obviously.

Oh, and they go to sea at Christmas sometimes, too.

Only if they haven't broken down!

Danny. Thanks for taking my point up. You could be right but I need a clue to what DTAPS is please. No sign of it in AAP-6.

Think he was going for Duty Towed Array Patrol Ship. Not 100% about the 'Duty' bit tho.

Ah, that would make sense but Would that be adequate for de lousing the Bomber Boats. If the N Atlantic ship appears off the Clyde each time for that purpose, wouldn't it be a dead give away as to what was leaving?
