Rn minehunters collide in Bahrain

Collision between the reversing HMS Chiddingfold (Hunt class minehunter) and the docked HMS Bangor (Sandown class minehunter) in Bahrain. Note both ships' hulls are made from fibreglass to avoid detonating mines.

Oh dear. Still the bantz are great. Apparently this is HMS Chiddingfold's second collision incident in the past decade - one would think it was captained by an american at this rate.

        It's been suggested that whomever was at the wheel of HMS Chiddingfold is due for an Interview Without Coffee.

        Their last victim was the HMS Penzance (another Hunt class) in 2021. Maybe the ship just doesn't like the newer class of minehunter?

      They were setting up to bounce in sideways but then the engine wasn't there for the last forward blip. Likely to be misfortune. Technique is a little hotdog and better suited for smaller boats.

    At least repair is easy, both field expedient and later in dockyard.

    Stop posting in this illegitimate thread. This accident was caused by R*ssian saboteurs, but fortunately the brave and skilled English helmswoman averted disaster, saving countless lives.

    Can only assume the Chiddingfold has heard about all the recent scrappings of the 23s and is aiming to be last boat floating amongst the minehunters.
