Thanks for the great vid, Armchair

I recently had the pleasure to watch from the shore, as they were practising with helos. At first I thought it was abour vertrep'ping, but gradually it became clear that non-compliant boarding was the thing being repeated, many times over.
Have always liked the shape of the ship, and the vid also nicely shows the overhang of the helo deck.
If there is one thing to criticise, it is how the double funnels restrict the size of the hangar. In the shots from behind, when the tanker and the frigate are in alignment one can see that both have exactly the same hangar. I guess with tie-downs at least one more sizeable helo can be ferried.
