 HMS Mohawk (F125) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
HMS Mohawk (F125) was a Tribal-class frigate of the Royal Navy.
In 1970, Mohawk underwent a drastic conversion to perform her planned role of training ship, which included the removal of her aft 4.5-in gun.
Later that year, Mohawk, along with her sister-ship Zulu, was part of the eight-ship Group 6 deployment, led by the cruiser Tiger, that deployed to the Far East, visiting a variety of ports in fly-the-flag visits.
