UK's first Type 45 destroyer ready for maiden deployment

HMS Daring will sail from Portsmouth in the New Year, after more than four years of trials, tests and training which have just concluded with eight demanding weeks off Plymouth.

The first of six cutting-edge Type 45 destroyers, HMS Daring will sail on her maiden deployment in 2012, after she and her company of 180 men and women came through final training with flying colours.

The Portsmouth-based warship has just completed two months in the hands of the team from Flag Officer Sea Training (FOST), specialists who prepare the entire fleet for all eventualities when deployed around the globe.
