Communicate

When I went on the Clyde, on the Waverley, to see the Tall Ships Parade of Sail in 2011 we also saw most things that were on - or over - the Clyde.

As we passed Scotstoun we saw two of the new Type 45 Darling class destroyers which were undergoing sea trials. They were quite strange looking things, and not yet in full naval trim. The Communications Technology on Dragon caught my eye.

We were a bit too close to catch all of ship in one shot, but here is a link to a photo on the internet.

I see disguised daleks in the first photo.
Me too, LOL!
Kindred spirits!
Disguised Daleks would be very spooky on a destroyer!
Exterminate!
Very high tech communicating there.
Ooooh, what an interesting choice.
Great response to the prompt. That equipment is both impressive and kind of scary.
They do look as if they were designed by a child with a set of duplo...
When Fe and I saw them first we thought they just looked like card board models from a film set; then we realised we were passing the BAE Systems shipyard
This looks really strange, but fascinating as well.
Very interesting, and they do look like Daleks!
Very impressive!
I can see I'm not the only one seeing Daleks...
Impressive ship.
