Britain sending third warship to Gulf

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The UK is sending another major warship to the Persian Gulf amid ongoing tensions with Iran.

Frigate HMS Kent will travel to the region from mid-September to bolster the Royal Navy’s presence.

The UK has HMS Montrose permanently stationed in the Gulf, but the frigate will soon enter a Royal Navy base in Bahrain for around three or four weeks, in order to refuel and re-stock.

Destroyer HMS Duncan is currently en route to the Gulf, with her arrival expected by the beginning of next week, in order to provide relief and avoid a gap in the UK’s deployment.

Britain also has four minehunters in the region.
