Wot Ship

Discussion in 'The Fleet' started by Nutty, Jul 19, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. So 40 minutes ago this ship jacked up opposite my spy's look out position. A search of Janes 2004 fails to reveal what she is.

    Any ideas????

  3. To us Submariners its just another Target !!!
     
  4. Looks like a military version of a Rig Support vessel.Is it a UK vessel?I think i can make out FTSTVKK and W218 or 216 on its hull.
     
  5. Looks like the fishery protection ship build by Fergusons.....
     
  6. Its a Norwegien Coast Guard Vessel "KYSTVAKT" means Coast Guard

  7. Well spotted SIr.......spotter
     
  8. Top man - not sure if Janes have all the coastguard ships - I'm assuming your reffering to Janes Fighting Ships?
     
  9. Nutty posts a picture of an "unknown" ship, asks "wot ship", waits for a few stupid responses, then reveals that he knows and gives an answer. I smell bovine droppings.
    Well then Nutty, what's your defence? :blob4:
     
  10. Its a Barentshav-klassen.Off shore Patrol vessel.So far there are only 3 in the class.

    Powered by LPG.All are due to enter service in 2008.

    Vessels in class are KV's Barentshav,Sortland and Svarlbad.
     
  11. No I phoned my Spy who is just off to the Continent to see his new Grandson and said I can't read the Pendant Number. So getting out his bins he then read off the writing and number, "Bye the way he says would you be interested in the Norwegien flag she is flying" Hence I passed on the info to yoos lot.

    I have just found this.

    W318


    Which appears to be our beast.

    Most Janes entries 2004/5 have coast guard vessels including UK

    To be fair to my spy he is an ex Crab Ooorrrficer Air Crew and knows little nautical

  19. There is two skippers, 3 to 4 weeks on and the same off, it is the same with the airforce squadron who fly Mk 86 Lynx, longest away is 4 weeks, we all pay redused tax and get lots of overtime as we cannot get home everyday after work, any snags take it up with the union.
