Approaching port you would expect everyone to be at harbour stations so why could they not avoid a bloody big tanker?
Brazen, Edinburgh, Jupiter. Just to name a few.Seadog
Fortunately, whether through good training or luck, the RN has been relatively incident free. Okay so we had Vanguard colliding with a French SSBN and HMS Southampton back in '88 hitting somthing but other than that???
Do they have standing orders to be assertive and expect other vessels to give way for example?
