The hull in question was the decommissioned, HMAS Torrens, a River-class (variant of the British Leander-class) destroyer escort that served in the Royal Australian Navy from 1971 to 1998. Following decommissioning, the Torrens was sunk in an exercise by the Collins-class submarine, HMAS Farncomb on 14th July, 1999.
