HMAS Darwin FFG 04 entering Hobart

The guided missile frigate, HMAS Darwin (FFG04) arrived in Hobart on 6 June for a short visit. Darwin is now fitted with a Mk41 VLS forward of the Mk13 missile launcher. Consequently she can now carry up to 32 ESSM missiles for short to medium range defence against air aircraft or missiles as well as her usual load of 8 Harpoon anti ship missiles and 32 SM-1 long range anti air missiles (these are soon to be replaced by the more advanced SM-2).
