HMCS Toronto to Halifax Ship yards
Halifax Shipyards will be cramming in the frigates - With 2 allready there undergoing thier FELEX mid-life refits (HMCS Fredericton at the Machine Shop Wharf, and HMCS Montreal in the graving Dock) HMCS Toronto, is due to arrive at Halifax Shipyard this week for about 10 days of preparation before deployment overseas in January.
Warships typically dont have a maintance period like this prior to deployment, however the ship is expected to serve a double length tour (18 months), with the crew being rotated mid deployment.
