HDMS Niels Juel preview

Arriving at dusk this evening the Danish frigate Niels Juel did not co-operate for the camera, so this is only a preview.

The 6,645 ton (full load displacement) vessel was built in a remarkably short time. Laid down in December 2009, it was launched in December 2010 and commissioned in November 2011. Built economically on the pattern of the previous Absalon class, the three ships of the Iver Huitfeldt class, of which this is the third, a fitted for air defence.
The ship is visiting HMC Dockyard for a few days, and will, we hope, sail in daylight..
