RFA tanker in maiden call to Gibraltar
The Royal Fleet Auxiliary tanker RFA Tiderace arrived in Gibraltar on Thursday for what the Ministry of Defence said was a routine visit.
The vessel provides logistical support to the Royal Navy all over the world, including refuelling its warships at sea.
RFA Tiderace is the second of a fleet of four 39,000 tonne Tide-class tankers, all of which are now in service.
This is its maiden call to Gibraltar.
