Depends on whether she is flying a Red Duster from the stern or not.

Thank you. Her ais was powered down until late last week.
I see there are fears for the future of Babcock's Appledore yard,(again) now that work on this ship has completed, and there are no further orders on their books, as they failed to secure contracts for a Maltese OPV order.
The only hope now is that Babcock will be successful in the Type 31e project. In the meantime, Appledore workers are commuting to Devonport for work.
