LONDON (BNS): Royal Navy frigate HMS Somerset has returned to sea following an extensive revamp, the UK Ministry of Defence has said.

The Type 23 frigate has a new lease of life as one of the most advanced fighting ships in the fleet after a £20 million docking and upgrade in her home port of Devonport Naval Base.

According to the MoD, the warship's fighting capability is now among the most advanced in the world with enhancements to the ship's Seawolf missile system, and installation of an advanced electronic communications system etc.

The living arrangements and main machinery have been improved and overhauled, and a new coat of paint on the hull increases its streamlined efficiency, economy and speed, it added.
