big version here

It’s the HMCS Regina, apparently. Halifax-class frigate.

Note phalanx antimissile gun on the rear.

I was pretty curious about it as well.

Was it a public relations stop, or any particular reason for it being here? I saw it moored at the cruise ship dock.


#3

If its teh yanks we should shot at it .


#4

Umm, you’re joking?


#5

Also, HMCS Regina was just recently off the California coast, with a couple other Canadian ships, taking part in exercises with the US Navy. They apparently got to use their Phalanx in live-fire mode. Against drones, I’d guess.

Big Canadian flag on the side of it, and a big red maple leaf a little behind this one. And another big Canadian flag on the back.

Someone told me that they saw some armed guard patrolling on the bow and stern of the ship while it was moored. I don’t think it was a public relation stop.
