Description

The Haynes Manual on the Type 45 'Daring' is the first modern warship to be covered within manual form. It includes the story of the development, trials and entry into Royal Navy service of the Type 45, the anatomy of the Type 45, its propulsion system, radar command and control systems, weapons systems, and the captain and executive officer's views. The Type 45 'Daring' class is the largest and most powerful air defense destroyer class ever operated by the Royal Navy and the largest general purpose surface warship (excluding aircraft carriers and amphibious ships) to join the fleet since the Second World War cruisers. Author Jonathan Gates describes the development, trials and entry into Royal Navy service of the Type 45, the anatomy of the vessel, its propulsion system, radar command and control systems, weapons systems, and how the ship is operated at sea. The book is officially licensed with the Royal Navy.
