FGS Oker visits London

Making a welcome addition to the variety of naval vessels that visit London this last weekend saw a visit from a spy ship that had arrived on a dark and foggy night.

More accurately FGS Oker is a SIGINT / ELINT reconnaissance ship, one of three German Navy Oste-class fleet service ships engaged in this role.

No sinister reasons behind her visit to London as she is on a multi-port training cruise and had previously visited both Devonport and Portsmouth naval bases and after London was heading to Cork in Ireland.

It will be interesting to see what the next naval visitor will be…..

    Looks amazing! I missed this one! Do you know what’s going on on the coast of the Royal Woolwich Arsenal development? We have been watching closely and looks like some works being done, looks new mooring will be in place for big ships? Regards

      Hi there – think it is an extension to the Woolwich Arsenal pier – probably in connection with the Tall Ships event happening in April. I will be doing a blog post about the expected visitors in the coming weeks.
