Soon to be HMAS Hobart arrives In Sydney Harbour
The Royal Australian Navy’s newest ship, the guided missile destroyer (DDG) Hobart, arrived in her home port of Sydney for the first time prior to her commissioning in September.
The future HMAS Hobart is the first of three Hobart Class DDGs. In 2017, Hobart successfully completed builder and acceptance trials which tested the ship’s handling, equipment and systems to ensure they conform to the design and build specifications.
The ship’s company are preparing for her commissioning, at which point she will enter the fleet as Her Majesty’s Australian Ship (HMAS) Hobart and start her test and evaluation period. This period will integrate the ship into the fleet and train Navy personnel to operate the warship in an operational environment.
When commissioned, the warship will have a ship’s company of approximately 180 personnel and will displace 7,000 tonnes when fully loaded. The ship is 146m long and can travel in excess of 28 knots.
