NUSHIP Sydney arrived in her namesake city for the first time on 27 March 2020, 36 years to the day since the last warship to carry the name arrived in Sydney. Sydney came alongside her new homeport at Garden Island in Sydney following the transit from Osborne in South Australia where she was built.

Image

Sydney is the last of the Navy's three Hobart Class vessels and is based on the Navantia F100 frigate design, which is under considerations for the US Navy FFGX frigate competition.

Image

Sydney will be commissioned into the RAN in May 2020.

I'm trying to work out why ADELAIDE is flying her at sea ensign as well as her harbour ensign. One or the other their folks. Just the Yeoman coming out in me. If she was at sea, just the ensign from the mast, at anchor just the ensign from the ensign staff down aft.

On 21 March 2003, HMAS Anzac provided naval gunfire support during the Battle of Al Faw.

The intent of the assault was to capture the Al Faw Peninsula before Iraqi forces could sabotage the two major oil terminals in the area.

Image

The frigate began her first fire support mission at 06:04 on 21 March (the first time a RAN ship had fired in anger in 31 years) and completed seven fire missions over a three-day period.

HMAS Anzac received the Meritorious Unit Citation on 27 November 2003 for her service during this deployment. In March 2010, Anzac was awarded the battle honours "Persian Gulf 2001–03" and "Iraq 2003"
