I just wish it was still carrying Harpoon, even empty containers would at least look the part. A Warship should be able to engage in all three domains, in the air, on the surface and under water, even if it only really specialises in one.

Finished might be a bit too far but under going testing at sea is a Good sign :thumbup:

I wonder if going forward Dauntless will be the test bed for all the upgrades coming to the type 45 platform or if it will be time to get some miles on her instead?

HMSDefender in Kiel Week. Impressive is her large helicopter hangar, and tiny Wildcat helicopter. With several UAVs, she will obtain a good situation awareness. Also, those UAVs could carry ECM decoys to counter incoming ASMs.

Looks like damage replacement rather than a PIP diesel hole. Wrong size and position for it anyway.

https://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/news-and-l ... ine-trials
Now back in Portsmouth, Dauntless is undergoing crucial planned maintenance and systems upgrades for the rest of the year to ensure she remains at the cutting-edge of naval/air defence operations before returning to the Fleet.

Trials, training and assessment will follow in the spring, with the ship fully operational again and ready to deploy worldwide – from next summer.


Dauntless had been in refit before being transferred to Birkenhead for PIP what else needs doing? That's also not forgetting the later addition of CAMM. The T45s will have such 'low miles' it will be 2040 before the T83s are needed.
