The 32 Mk41 configuration seems to be an 8 cell module in front of the 24 as per UK configuration and not the 32 setup as the Australians have. Everyone so far has a different configuration which I guess is not a bad thing as it shows flexibility.Simon82 wrote:I don’t have a clear picture I’m afraid, but it looks like it’s 4 x 8 cell modules on the model at Euronaval 2018. So, 32 Mk.41 silos in all. Although you’re right, the configuration seems to differ depending in which model/graphic you are viewing.
EDIT: The Mk. 41 silos are quite clearly visible at the 0.47 mark in this video from Naval Recognition. Thank you Xavier and crew.

As Ive said before be great NZ Brazil etc but in reality I think that's it for foreign future sales ,but it's not done bad I guess anyway
