    Re: AIS and Warships

    True, but over on the other side of Scotland only tugs and support vessels can be identified at the nuclear sub base at Faslane one HM ship underway in the Firth of Clyde and, further south in Devonport and Portsmouth Dockyards, only a Dutch warship in Plymouth, a couple of minesweepers in the Sound and, in Portsmouth, support vessels and a couple of Royal Naval Reserve ships. The implicit rule seems to be something like, AIS if not deemed operational, otherwise off. I’d imagine something similar for most navies.

    The RN would appear to have fewer qualms about posting current AIS details.  If you go to http://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/home/centerx:-3.2/centery:56.1/zoom:11 you will see the pride of the RN HMS Queen Elizabeth, UKs new (and only) Aircraft Carrier, at anchor on her second night out in the Firth of Forth.  If you look a little bit further out, you'll spot what could well be the night watchman.  DaveP
