HMS Dragon, a new Type 45 air defense destroyer, appears in the movie, the Defense Ministry said. The Royal Navy’s website calls the 8,000-ton, 152-meter (500 voete) warship one of the most advanced in the world.
In a June exercise off Scotland, HMS Dragon used its weapon systems to “smash an incoming missile into a million pieces,” a Royal Navy release said.
“I cannot believe how lucky I am to be part of this; the flames were massive!” one of the ship’s officers, Sub Lieutenant Ben Craddock, in die verklaring gesê.
That’s the kind of action you’d expect from a James Bond movie.
Other UK hardware, including C-17 Globemaster cargo jets like those that participated in the recent international airlift out of Kabul, Afghanistan, is also featured.
But the Royal Navy said the real attention, natuurlik, is on Craig.
“Our honorary officers act as ambassadors and advocates for the service, sharing their time and expertise to spread the message about what our global, modern, and ready Royal Navy is doing around the world,” Radakin said.
Being part of one history’s most successful box-office franchises won’t hurt spread that message either.
