Description:
HMS Cottesmore (M32) was a Hunt-class mine countermeasure vessel (MCMV) of the British Royal Navy, launched in 1982 and converted in 1997 into a patrol vessel. The ship was declared surplus to requirement and put on the MoD list for disposal in 2004. In 2008 she was bought by Lithuania, along with HMS Dulverton.

Lieutenant-Commander His Royal Highness The Duke of York commanded HMS Cottesmore from April 1993 until November 1994.

She was decommissioned by the Royal Navy in September 2005. Her ship's bell and other memorabilia were presented to the village of Cottesmore, Rutland.

Thales has been awarded the prime contractorship to upgrade the vessels with a technologically-advanced minehunting system which will include fitting the new hull-mounted Sonar 2193 system, propulsion, command and control systems, and mine disposal systems.

The ship is expected to enter service with the Lithuanian navy by 2011.
