Anyway, IH-based ship, if it is 1/3 of cost of T26, there will be no ASW kits onboard. I mean, T31e with 250M GBP cost "cannot" have any ASW kits (may be other than small hull mounted sonar).
If you add ASW, the best will be 1/2 of T26 and I bet even more.
Also, what is more important is that, it is toooooo late, as you said.
