Devonport based submarine hunter HMS Richmond inbound today in the Sound, and ‘recharged and ready,’ her Twitter feed says proudly.

The Type 23 frigate in 2022 spent time in the Arctic working alongside aircraft carrier HMS Prince of Wales and other NATO allies with the largest military exercises in the region for 30 years.

HMS Richmond tested her weapons, sensors and her ability to remain silent – an important aspect of her main role as an anti-submarine warfare frigate. And in UK waters, she tested which of her equipment is the quietest and therefore the most effective for hunting submarines.
