Name This Ship!

IIRC, she was mostly all white when I did the Thames boat tour in 14.  They must have been getting her ready for the dazzle paint job.
I was thinking Thames....someone else beat me to the google-search though!
Almirante Grau (CLM-81)  Peruvian Navy

No, I'm not an aficionado of naval vessels - the title of the picture gave it away.
Or before that it was the HNLMS De Ruyter (C801) of the  Royal Netherlands Navy

HMS Calypso/Briton?

Your got it.


What she looked like in full glory.

The aircraft is a Su-30MKK of the Peoples Liberation Army's Navy, onboard the PLAN ship Liaoning.

Yep. You got that one NFLD Sapper. I failed to notice the canards the first time I looked. Well done.

BTW W601, one of the little clues that drove me to the Chinese side was that, clearly, it was Russian made or based equipment, but the deck crew is wearing colour coded vests associated to their task, which is an American/French (and I suppose soon British) practice that the Russians and the Indians have never adopted.
I got nothing at this time, I defer the next vessel to Oldgateboatdriver...and if he has nothing then the floor is open....
I've got one for you all.
