While the precise composition of a Maritime Task Group would depend on operational circumstances at that time, we will be able to draw from a range of modern and highly capable vessels, such as the Type 45 Destroyers, Type 23 Frigates, the Astute Class submarines and, in the longer term, the Type 26 Frigates.

For operational security reasons, we do not comment on specific capabilities as this would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the Armed Forces.
