HMS Bristol was the only Type 82 destroyer to be built. She and her sisters were  intended to provide AA support for the CVA01 aircraft carrier that was cancelled. The destroyers were also cancelled with the exception of HMS Bristol because there would be no fixed-wing carrier in the Royal Navy but this unique ship was finally built as a trials ship and used to test the concept of "maintenance by replacement" of her gas turbines. She did serve in the South Atlantic arriving there with the second wave of the Task Force. Decommissioned in 1991, she is still in Portsmouth and serving as a Sea Cadet Accommodation Ship.
