Joint Warrior arrivals

Thursday morning and more ships arrived for Joint Warrior exercise. These four visitors were on their way to KGV dock in Glasgow, the larger ones being assisted by tugs.

I'm not one to complain about the weather (not too much any way) but it was horrible today with constant rain and very poor visibility.

Danish "Thesis" class ocean patrol vessel, HDMS Vaedderen F359, was the first vessel to arrive this morning.

German oiler FGS Rhoen A1443 was escorted by local tugs once she reached the river.

F221 FGS Hessen is a German Sachsen class frigate, commissioned in 2006.

Final vessel of the 4 is A535 HNoMS Valkyrien. This Norwegian support vessel was originally built as a civilian ship and is capable of anchor handling and towing.
