    Falklands' HMS Clyde replacement delayed because of post-Brexit defense duties

    Currently there are three POVs based around the UK and Europe with HMS Clyde, stationed in the Falkland Islands

    The Daily Mail has reported that the Royal Navy is to keep old offshore patrol vessels it was due to decommission to ensure it has enough vessels to police Britain's borders after Brexit. This allegedly means the Falkland Islands patrol HMS Clyde, which was to be replaced by HMS Forth from the new batch of patrol vessels and which is scheduled to become active operational next September, will remain in service in the South Atlantic.
