"....The Portsmouth-based 'capital ship' and her*twelve Type 23 frigate sisters were designed in the late 1980s to hunt Soviet submarines in the North Atlantic...."
Dear MoDRSS, I'm normally loath to swear in these threads, but please, stop talking like a cnut, a ******* Frigate is in no way, means or form a ******* Capital Ship! So please, stop the hyperbolic bollocks.
Standard procedure - it keeps the enemy guessing as to which boat is where. This one could pop up next week off Stanley, or it could be an entirely different T class. I suppose it depends on whether you can be arsed to go to Plymouth and Faslane to count the ones alongside. Of course, it all goes to ratshit when HMS Troutstream pops up off Bahrain and has a cocktail party.
