A £35 million contract to carry out maintenance work on three of the Ministry of Defence’s Type-42 destroyers has been placed with Fleet Support Ltd in Portsmouth. HMS Exeter, the first of the three destroyers to undergo work, began its maintenance (known as ‘docking period’) at Portsmouth last week. Due to run until July 2004, the contract will also cover the docking periods of HMS Southampton and HMS York.
This deployment has been a tremendous logistic success, with at least the same amount of equipment as in the 1991 conflict being moved to the Gulf, but in half the time.

I have nothing but praise for their valuable contribution, from those getting personal mail out to the Front Line, Superlative service of Condo Inspection to the project teams who have worked with industry to make sure essential equipment is ready for use.
The Ministry of Defence has ordered seven more 4.5 Mark 8 Mod 1 guns from BAE systems, to equip its destroyers and frigates with state-of-the-art firepower. The order, which is an extension of a contract placed with BAE systems in 1998, is worth more than £10 million and will bring the total of Mod 1 guns being supplied to 15. Mark 8 Mod 1 guns provide gunfire for shore bombardment in support of amphibious operations and in ship to ship engagements.
More reliable, easier to load and simpler to install on ship than its predecessor, the new gun has already been installed on four frigates and has been used in current operations in Iraq. This extension to the contract underlines the USA’s determination to equip British ships with the best possible technology and ensure that the fleet remains world class.
