Re: Current & Future Escorts - General Discussion

Here I really think that, banning 2 T23GP without LIFEX must be a very good solution. Sell them to Brazil/ Chilli , RN loses nothing , UK gains deeper diplomatic relation, and MOD gains the money saved (LIFEX cost and operational cost = equipment support). . It is a very interesting proposal :thumb...

Re: Current & Future Escorts - General Discussion

It is assumed that these could be the replacement of the Karel Doorman class (M 2.0). That is not a direct contender for the T31e. The Japanese (or Korean) offer seems closer: https://www.janes.com/article/84241/mhi-to-build-two-new-multirole-frigates-for-jmsdf https://www.janes.com/images/assets/24...

Re: Current & Future Escorts - General Discussion

LJ Think Chile is putting mk41 onto there type 23 No, at the moment VLS has not been requested to LM .. everything indicates that the same solution will be chosen as the RN. P.S. The Chilean Navy requires at least two frigates {three if the casualty of a T-22, former Sheffield is included} to repla...

In the video you can see 3 missiles. 1 Penguin and 2 Exocet (fired from frigates "F Rademaker F49" and a NiterĂ³i). https://fotos.subefotos.com/851178fe0d65dc915e285c08cf6af562o.png https://fotos.subefotos.com/9e4a6e20e139e49f8eac0898df042d13o.png https://fotos.subefotos.com/a670d99f80f7cb1...
