HMS Duncan was in Gibraltar on Thursday, for a routine logistics visit. This impressive Type 45 destroyer recently sailed from her home port in Portsmouth for a six-month operational deployment.
Initially she will be operating in the Mediterranean Sea, tasked with providing area air defence to the French aircraft carrier FS Charles de Gaulle as part of their Carrier Strike Group deployment, Groupe Aéronaval (GAN) 19. She will then resume NATO operations as required.
HMS Duncan is the sixth of the highly-capable Type 45 air defence destroyers and one of the most advanced warships in the world. She sails with a ship's company in excess of 280 personnel.
