Image - The Long Range Radar (LRR) and mast cap for HMS Queen Elizabeth, positioned on the barge as they begin the journey from the Netherlands to Rosyth.
The LRR is very similar to the one installed on the RN Type 45 destroyers, developed by the collaborative partnership between Thales Netherlands and BAESystems. The mast cap was manufactured by Babcock at Rosyth from drawings produced by design teams in the ACA at Bristol and Portsmouth. The mast cap was shipped to the Netherlands for the installation, integration and testing of the LRR .

Construction is well underway of LB02,03 & 04; and CB02,03 & 04 for HMS Prince of Wales. The assembly of POW will begin at Rosythe when HMS Queen Elizabeth launches next year.
