These are the Tri-ang Minic Ships models of the Royal Navy’s Type 45 Daring Class Destroyers which were commissioned between July 2009 and September 2013. In a return to historical convention the Royal Navy designated the Type 45’s as the “D” Class and assigned each of the ships a traditional name starting with the letter “D” – HMS Daring D32, HMS Dauntless D33, HMS Diamond D34, HMS Dragon D35, HMS Defender D36 and HMS Duncan D37. The Type 45’s are primarily air defense destroyers, capable of defending against both aircraft and missile attack, whose mission is “to shield the Fleet from air attack”. Designed to replace the Royal Navy’s venerable Type 42 destroyers (which entered service between 1975 and 1983) – the original plan to order 12 ships as a one for one replacement was, controversially, reduced to a final order for 6 ships due to budget constraints and cost overruns. With a displacement of 8,500 tons the Daring class are the largest destroyers ever built for the Royal Navy and the first Royal Navy warships constructed to Lloyd’s Register Naval Ship Rules. They are also the first Royal Navy ships to be designed and built with “gender neutral” crew accommodation with six person cabins for junior crew members and individual cubicles instead of communal shower and toilet facilities.
For air defense the ships are equipped with PAAMS (Principal Anti Air Missile System), designated Sea Viper by the Royal Navy, which comprises –
