Last month, the UK’s Royal Navy reported that its high-readiness frigate, the HMS St Albans, shadowed and monitored a Russian warship travelling through the English Channel, in an attempt to protect British waters.

The UK Royal Navy’s recent naval drills involved the HMS St. Albans, a Type 23 frigate, as well as the hunter-killer submarine HMS Astute. These “have sharpened their teeth to counter the looming threat of Russia’s resurgent underwater fleet”, according to the Portsmouth newspaper The News.

“To be the best at what we do, it is essential that we train both against and alongside the very best. The HMS Astute provides that partner, with whom we can polish our skills to the highest level,” John Cromie, commanding officer of the St Albans, said.
