The Royal Navy (RN) Type 23
Duke-class frigate HMS Argyll
has completed initial firings of
the new GWS 35 Sea Ceptor
local area air defence system,
the first end-to-end tests from
a ship platform.
Argyll, the oldest of the 13
Type 23s still in RN service,
performed first-of-class firings
on the Hebrides range off
northwest Scotland in July 2017.
