HMS Shoreham Present at IDEX 2015

One of the UK Royal Navy minehunters, HMS Shoreham, which is permanently based in the Gulf will be at the Gulf largest defence show, IDEX 2015. 

The vessel will be hosting tours and its divers will be carrying out mine clearance demonstrations.

The UK’s Minister of Defence Equipment, Science and Technology, Philip Dunne, is leading a delegation of 7 armed forces officers and defence officials to IDEX 2015, held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where more than 50 UK defence companies are set to promote their services and equipment and seek potential partners.

Philip Dunne said:

The defence partnership between the UK and the UAE is vital to both our interests.

Whilst at the show the Minister will announce the signing of the P3E Capability Enhancement Contract for the RAF’s Typhoon aircraft.

This will introduce a number of upgrades to the Eurofighter’s mission and maintenance systems. The contract, known as the Phase 3 Capability Enhancement contract, will equip the Eurofighter Typhoon to deploy multiple precision-guided air-to-surface weapons at fast-moving targets with low-collateral damage. It further confirms the aircraft’s full multi-role, swing-role capability.
