Another one to sea

NUSHIP BRISBANE sailed today for the first time. We now have two AWDs heading to sea. Nice to see the old "41" at sea again even on a new hull. :clap:

Some sensational drone footage.

The placement of the nav radar is strange, it basically has a massive blind spot, fitted in front of the foward superstructure anything aft of 90 degree on either side is blocked by the superstructure.

If she is running on EMCON and trying to pretend not to be a warship she is basically blind aft.
