Royal Navy Type 23 Frigate HMS Sutherland with a Merlin Helicopter Overhead
A Merlin helicopter flies over Royal Navy Type 23 frigate, HMS Sutherland during a Maritime Combat Power Visit (MCPV) in the Solent.
The week consisted of a rehearsal day, a VVIP influence day and two sea days for students on advanced command and staff course (ACSC) 15 and culminated in an amphibious demonstration onto Browndown Beach, Hampshire.
The MCPV was identified as a perfect opportunity to deliver the core Naval message and show off the utility of the Royal Navy to a group of hand picked, influential individuals who will begin to advocate the Naval narrative in areas we wish to be prevalent.
