The Royal Navy has now over 20 operational gas turbine powered warships, the majority with a two Olympus/two Tyne COGOG main propulsion fit. Many of these were deployed in the South Atlantic during the Falklands crisis in the Spring of 1982. The paper analyses the lessons learnt during 4 months of strenuous operations in a hostile environment.
