James Bond star Daniel Craig was appointed a Commercial Officer in the British Royal Navy on Thursday (23) – matching his 007 character as Commander-in-Chief.
“I am pleased to welcome Commander Daniel Greek to the Royal Navy,” said Admiral Sea Lord Sir Tony Radakin, Commander of the British Navy, in a statement.
Daniel Craig is best known for playing Commander Panda for the past 15 years, a naval officer who has kept Britain safe on travels around the world. The Royal Navy does this every day in the real world, using technology and skills just like the pond.
Craig wants to use his new military status – the seventh-highest-ranking commander in the Royal Navy – as a way to help British military families, the statement said.
The actor is set to star for the fifth time in British Super Spy “007 – Die Time to Die” – which premieres September 30 in Brazil – which the British military is also using to showcase some of its new equipment.
The HMS Dragon, a new type of 45 air defense destroyer, appears in the photo, according to the Department of Defense. The Royal Navy website considers the 152-meter, 8,000-ton warship to be one of the most advanced in the world.
During an exercise off the Scottish coast in June, the Royal Navy reported that HMS Dragon had used its weapon systems to “destroy a missile into a million pieces”.
“I couldn’t believe how lucky I was to be a part of it; the fire was huge!
This is the action you expect from a James Bond movie.
Other British equipment, including C-17 Globemaster cargo planes, took part in a recent international flight from Kabul, Afghanistan.
But the Royal Navy has said the real focus, of course, is on Craig.
“Our business leaders act as ambassadors and advocates for military service, sharing their time and experience to spread the message of what our modern, out-of-the-box, global Royal Navy is doing to the world,” he said. Radakin said.
Being one of the most successful box office owners in history will only spread that message.
