The picture : HMS DRAGON checks in

Published: 04 Sep 2011

The 7,500-tonne vessel has been formally accepted from shipbuilder BAE Systems and will now undergo a series of tests before being declared ready for operations.

Armed with the world-leading Sea Viper missile defence system, she is able to defend against multiple attacks from even the most sophisticated aircraft and anti-ship missiles, simultaneously approaching from any direction and at supersonic speeds.
