The Zero-Gravity Zone

The below short shows the Type 23 (Duke-class) frigate HMS Westminster (F237) going after it in heavy seas, with a great view of her new MDBA CAMM/Sea Ceptor battery.

The 4,900-ton FFG has been on HMs naval list since 1992 and in her career has shown up in a Bond film (not one of the good ones), and been involved in the Persian Gulf, off Libya, and the HOA. She recently saved the life of father and son from the capsized fishing boat Ocean Echo in Weymouth Bay, racing through high seas to pluck the two out of the drink.

All in a day’s work.
