Royal Navy Warship HMS Dragon will feature in No Time To Die (2021).

Before the movie's release, we got a sneak preview of the distinct Type 45 destroyer, with her red dragon emblem on the hull, seen cutting through the waves in the No Time To Die trailers.

HMS Dragon is the fourth ship of the Type 45 or Daring-class air-defence destroyers built for the Royal Navy. She was launched in November 2008 and commissioned on 20 April 2012.

HMS Dragon is part of the most powerful destroyer class ever built in the UK and one of the most advanced warships in the world. She is equipped with a state of the art air defence system which will be able to track and destroy a target the size of a cricket ball travelling three times the speed of sound.

The HMS Dragon ship is over 150m (500ft) long, Dragon will have a range of 7,000 nautical miles. Together with her five sister ships, HMS Dragon is designed to be a flexible, multi-role vessel able to carry out a variety of tasks across the globe, from air defence to humanitarian and anti-piracy roles.

*Spoiler alert*

As well as HMS Dragon making an appearance, the Royal Air Force also granted access to key assets and personnel. RAF Brize Norton, in Oxfordshire, was used as a backdrop in the film, standing in for a NATO airbase in Norway where Bond joins MI6 allies and later boards a C-17 Globemaster.

Meanwhile, the Army supplied troops from the Household Cavalry. They offered their time at a pivotal moment in their calendar, just before the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.

The appearance of the ship in the film was officially made public during the announcement of Daniel Craig being appointed Honorary Royal Navy Commander on 23 September 2021.
