  1. I served on Trenchant during this trial, we were used as we getting near to our refit period and all the tiles had been removed from the aft end of the boat so they could paint it I think the blue was sourced from a local DIY store and the grey came from a Type 23 that was in the dockyard at the time. The trial was carried out as submarines were carrying out more ops in the Med and Gulf, but unfortunately the trial was carried out in the North Atlantic which meant we stuck out like a sore thumb Torbay was painted in a very dark plum colour. there were a couple of variations the blue was over painted in grey and then black as you can see from the picture it weathered quite badly. trencpay by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr

    Gannet AEW

    Great work, lovely looking Gannet
  8. I don't think it is a mirror image, the bracket in the red area doesnt seem to appear in the blue are so i'm not convinced there is a flare pack on the aft section but I could be wrong, unfortunately I couldn't take pictures of the aft area of the DAS because of the way the aircraft were parked. 1 by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr
  9. A few pictures of the FLIR fit on a Merlin HM2 and a picture of ZH841 which has the FLIR fitted on the Stbd side and a weapon Pylon on the Port side, notice that the FLIR fit for the HM1 in my previous post and the HM2 in this post is different.
