HMS Trent will be supporting the full spectrum of operations across the whole of the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and West Africa .
She's a Batch 2 Offshore Patrol Vessel, is fitted with a sophisticated suite of sensors and weapons and is crewed by a rotating team of 150 sailors.
Commander Tom Knott of HMS Trent, says: “The crew are excited at the opportunities of forming a close relationship with Gibraltar over the years ahead”.
