HDMS ESBERN SNARE - L17

One of the ships taking part in Joint Warrior 081, but which did not start from the Clyde, was the Danish combat support ship ESBERN SNARE, second vessel of the 'Absalon' class. Together with her elder sister ABSALON, she arrived on the river yesterday evening, and anchored off Greenock together with the other participants. Both ships sailed for sea this morning, and ESBERN SNARE is seen as she passed Cloch Point. Built at Odense, she was commissioned into the Royal Danish Navy in April 2005.

Nice looking and very fast vessels...I saw them on AIS both on arrival and departure in the Kintyre areas doing 19.5 kts!
