Amazing new warship

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/4667132.stm

Well not really that new but due to be launched on Wednesday.

Looks like an amazing bit of kit - would go down well in a Bond film!!!

They will be carrying the new Pacific 24 on board, launched with a new and very sophisticated davit system.
