DRAGON - D35

With a large red dragon emblazoned on her forward end symbolising her future affiliation to the city of Cardiff, the latest Type 45 destroyer spends her last night on the shipyard ways at Govan, awaiting her launching tomorrow afternoon. To be named DRAGON, she is due to enter the Clyde at 1500. Construction of the ship commenced in December 2005, and her bow - built at Portsmouth at BVT Surface Fleet's facility at Woolston - was moved into position at Govan two years later, following the launch of DIAMOND.
