BAe Systems - HMS Dauntless Launched On The Clyde

BAE Systems : 23 January, 2007  (Company News)
Over 13,000 people joined BAE Systems employees to watch the launch of Dauntless, the second of the Royal Navy's fleet of Type 45 anti-air warfare destroyers. Dauntless was named and launched by Lady Burnell-Nugent at BAE Systems' shipyard in Govan on the Clyde.
Speaking after the launch, BAE Systems Surface Fleet Solutions managing director Vic Emery said: 'The success so far that has been achieved on the Type 45 contract on the Clyde is testament to the innovation, design and engineering skills of our employees and partners.

'This, the second successful launch on the Clyde in less than 12 months, has shown the commitment we have to building the next generation of warships for the Royal Navy.'

The fleet of up to eight Type 45 anti-air warfare destroyers will, in concert with the Future Aircraft Carrier, provide the backbone of the Royal Navy's air defences for much of the first half of the 21st century.

Each destroyer will be able to engage a large number of targets simultaneously, and defend aircraft carriers or groups of ships, such as an amphibious landing force, against the strongest future threats from the air. The vessels will contribute to worldwide maritime and joint operations in multi-threat environments, providing a specialist air warfare capability until 2040.
