Alos on April 1 the Norwegian naval vessel HMNoS Raold Amundsen made a very brief visit to HMC Dockyard . This striking looking vessel is the second of five Fridtjof Nansen class frigates built between 2004 and 2008 . Modules built in Norway were shipped to Spain where the frigates were assembled at Navantia in El Ferrol. I recommend Wikipedia’s biography of Amundsen if you need a little history refresher course! The ship and her sisters are also well covered there.
