The Royal Navy is to send one of its most powerful warships to the Falkland Islands as tensions rise with Argentina over the disputed territory. HMS Dauntless will deploy to the South Atlantic in late March, almost 30 years to the day that a naval task force left Portsmouth to reclaim the Falklands after Argentina invaded in 1982. Portsmouth-based Dauntless will be the first of the navy's new £1bn Type 45 destroyers to go to the area. She is armed with supersonic Sea Viper missiles and an air defence system, which can take out targets the size of a cricket ball moving at three times the speed of sound.
