Dutch Warship Destroys Pirate 'Mother Ship'
ATC84 saidArticle got the Dutch ship acronym wrong. Should be HNLMS not HNMLS.
Anyway said "destroyer"... which is really an amphibious transport. I guess to journalists any ship that doesn't carry jet fighters is a "destroyer"
From what I see, only the poster above you used "destroyer" as vessel classification. The article simply says (four times) "warship."
Landing Platform Dock (LPD) amphibious warfare ship HNMLS Rotterdam IMO IMO 9109756, displacement 12750 tons, built 1997.
