12 years is today's estimation of a modern warship's usefulness.
Type 45's are approaching this 12yrs usefulness.
Did HMS Dauntless ever make it beyond the Dockyard wall?

Don't know about Dauntless, but this now explains why this particular 42 was like this - must have needed a wee lie down.

You truly are a Sloppy Knob Jockey. Where did you get the estimation of 12 years? I worked on the Type 45 Project for 4 years and so far as I can remember the life was anticipated to be in excess of 30 years, so we MAY see Daring being sold/scrapped in the early 30s.

Although I didn't work on the carrier project, I'm fairly sure they are expected to run into the 50s. Other factors not withstanding.

Kevan Jones Labour, Member of Parliament for North Durham, asked in a written question:

“To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what the timeframe is for HMS Dauntless to return to active duty.”

James Heappey, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Defence Procurement, responded:

“HMS DAUNTLESS will be the first of the Type 45 Destroyers to receive power and propulsion upgrades this spring and will return to sea for trials in 2021. Following completion of these sea trials she will return to the Fleet.”

She joined the fleet in 2009 - so by your reckoning it's due for scrap next year

or to someone sane 20 years after the 18 month refit to change out the diesels she is just about to undergo

you really do embaress yourself sometimes Norman

Had a spare 5 seconds to answer your question via google . The original question was however has it ever left the dockyard wall. Yes. A different question though when is it due back into the fleet . 2021 . Simples

Dauntless was commissioned on 3 June 2010 in the presence of her sponsor.[21] The MoD confirmed on 1 October 2010 that she had completed the first Sea Viper firing on a Hebridean firing range earlier in the week,[22]and the ship was accepted into service on 16 November the same year.[23]

In May 2011, Dauntless took part in Exercise Saxon Warrior in the Western Approaches, culminating in a so-called 'Thursday War'.[24]

In June 2011, Dauntless sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to Norfolk, Virginia, to take part in the FRUKUS war game exercises between Russia, France, the United States and the United Kingdom. En route in the Atlantic she rendezvoused and conducted manoeuvres with the Russian destroyer Admiral Chabanenko, which was also heading for the FRUKUS exercises, conducting cross helicopter exercises which saw Dauntless' two Lynx helicopters land on the Admiral Chabanenko. The deployment was the first time that two Lynxs had been deployed aboard a Type 45 destroyer.[25][26]

In September 2011, Dauntless was the first of the Type 45 destroyers to visit London. She sailed up the Thames and berthed opposite London City Airport for the Defence and Security Equipment International event.[27] On 25 November 2011, HMS Dauntless hosted Abdullah Gül, President of the Republic of Turkey.[28]

In January 2012, it was announced that Dauntless would deploy to the South Atlantic to replace HMS Montrose which was stationed around the Falkland Islands. The deployment was condemned by the government of Argentina, which claimed that the deployment representated a "militarization of the South Atlantic", despite the replacement representing only a modest increase in fighting capacity.[29][30][31]

Between 2011 and 2012 she was commanded by Captain William Warrender.[32]

In 2015, Dauntless re-sailed for the Middle East after a short delay, with a plan to take part in the centenary of the Gallipoli Campaign.[33]She conducted anti-piracy patrols, as well as provide escort to U.S. Navy aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) which is involved in airstrikes against ISIL.[34] In November 2015, she participated with other NATO air defence ships in a "At Sea Demonstration", focusing on anti-ballistic missile warfare.[35]

In April 2016, The Independent stated that the vessel had been relegated to use as a training ship due to manpower and technical shortages, although this was disputed by the MOD at the time.[36] Her status as an engineering training ship pending entering refit was confirmed in June 2016.[37]

As of July 2019, Dauntless is undergoing a refit, with a planned return to service date of 2021.[38]
