Blurb

The first edition of this book appeared in 1983, only a year after the Falklands and too early to reflect the changes brought about to the Navy's frigate force as a result of that war. By 1990 the results were clearly visible on many ships — notably improved electronic warfare devices, increased light AA armament, new CIWS gun-based systems, medium calibre guns introduced on the later Type 22s and greater attention to fire and damage control facilities in all ships.
In the anti-submarine role the introduction of the sensitive towed array sonars, together with improved computerised signal processing equipment, placed a much greater emphasis on the passive detection of submarines. In turn, this led to new and quiet propulsion systems wherein diesels and electric motors partly replaced the gas turbine in the latest ships.

My returns policies

If you wish to return a book please let me know as soon as possible but no later than three days after receipt. 
If you feel, and I agree after we have discussed it, that my description was misleading or inaccurate then, upon the receipt of the book in the condition you received it, I will then refund all your payment plus your return postage. 
If the book isn't what you really wanted and if we agree, then, upon my receipt of the book in the condition you received it, I will then refund your bid price.

I have found, so far, that the majority of my buyers are genuine. For my part I try and describe the books as fairly as possible - I am not a professional - and do not like buyers to feel dissatisfied. 

I am happy to pack together multiple buys made within a seven day period and post at cost as long as total value of purchases in the packet does not exceed the Royal Mail's built in compensation, which at the moment is £39.00.
