Check this out: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2007/08/15/nwarship115.xml Apparently she was meant to make 28 knots but actually does 31.5! Also she is described as the "greenest" ship the RN has ever had... as she has electric propulsion. But what does the journo think makes the electricity!!!
