HMS Glasgow is set to enter the water for the first time as the construction of the Royal Navy's new Type 26 frigates hits a new milestone. Last week she was moved on to the Clyde for the first time.
Five more Type 26 frigates will be built for the Royal Navy, the Prime Minister has announced. Defense manufacturer BAE Systems has been awarded a £4.2 billion contract to build the five warships, on top of the three already under construction.
Royal Navy sailors and arms, security, and aerospace company BAE Systems welcomed Falkland veterans to Glasgow shipyard where the first Type 26 frigate is under construction. The 44 veterans all of whom served on the previous HMS Glasgow which saw action during the Falklands visited the BAE systems shipyard on April 9th to see the new HMS Glasgow.
