A multi-million pound deal to build three new Royal Navy vessels in Scotland will protect more than 800 jobs, the Ministry of Defence revealed.
The ships will be built at BAE Systems' shipyards on the Clyde as part of the £348 million contract.
The new offshore patrol vehicles - featuring enhanced facilities - will protect UK interests at home and abroad.
The MOD did not comment on whether the contract would be affected by a Yes vote in the Scottish independence referendum in September.
Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said the deal would benefit the "dedicated workers of the Clyde, their families and the local economy in Glasgow".
