HMS DUNCAN launch

Into the former fitting out basin for the usual underwater launch inspection before being moved to Scotstoun for fitting out there.

How many more years until the next new ship appears in Govan?

Quite a while I would think. The current construction is on the carrier blocks which will go onto a barge I believe to be taken round to Rosyth depending of course on the Defence Review. The Clyde yards are doing the design work for the Type 22/23 replacements but who knows when they will appear....
The Govan fitting out basin is probably going to be converted to a building dock providing of course that the yard remains open!

yes normally launches are accmpanied by promises of new orders, but that fell foul when Daring was launched and Ships 7 and 8 were hinted at
