Surely this is now the time to invest further in the T26 hull to produce credible £500m Tier2 GP, ASW and AAW variants.Repulse wrote:Forget the T31e, the T26e is the best bet in town and we should invest big

I'd certainly advocate what others are suggesting above, question is if we do bin the T31 how to the RN mind the gap out to 2027?

Hold your horses!
- GP @ 500
-ASW @ 750-ish
-AAW more... as the nxt-gen will have to have ABM, even if only in the (Aster) "point" defence disguise
Remember when HMG said that the T31e was to be the ship we hoped to export to the world?!
Time to bin the whole T31 idea and just build 13 T26's. Eight fitted for and five without ASW gear if necessary.
You could save a lot of money from just binning two seperate designs and two seperate groups of design staff and have just the one.
