HMS Active was one of 8 "Amazon" class, Type 21 frigates that served the Royal Navy during the late 1970s' to mid 1980s'. Armed with the fabled Exocet anti-ship missiles, Seacat air defence missiles, anti-submarine torpedos and a 4.5" gun, the class was a truly multi-purpose weapons platform. They also carried a Westland Lynx helicopter, whose primary role was also anti-submarine. Powered by two Rolls Royce Tyne and Olympus gas turbine aircraft engines, they were also very fast, with a top design speed of 37 knots - literally fast enought to water-ski behind, as the Captain of HMS Ambuscade (another ship of the class) famously proved!
