I was watching one on sky last week about the building of the Arleigh Burke Destroyer and
bemoaning the fact we never have a similar programme about our ships and lo and behold
someone must have been listening

Missed an awful lot about her exceeding the design parameters on trials though.

Interesting how they fired the missiles - they dont get fitted until next year - they are going to use
Daring for so many first  of class trials that Defender will be fully operational before she is.
Still quite an interesting programme made for the general public - we probably have a more
technical view - especially the ex-matelots which I believe there are quite a few on "Mayhem"

The footage of Aster 30/15 missiles in the program were the firing trials from the trials barge HMS Longbow.

I liked the HMS Daring show. I'm not much of a techno type and just like warships and boats in general. Kind of want to build one now... {-)
