Re: Current & Future Escorts - General Discussion

But i have another idea of using the T26 get rid of the mission bay and put another 48 VLS on that space and replace the mushrooms with MK41, i believe the Type 26 hull can also be the a very decent AAW/Multirole warship. Here is the mock up of what i mention, delete the mission bay and lower the d...

Re: Current & Future Escorts - General Discussion

Maybe the way forward could be to take type 32 and 83 budgets as they come to light and role in together and build 6 x Type 47's based on a 145 meter A-140 with 64 VLS and 1 x 57mm and 2 x 40mm 3 x Type 84 Cruisers at 180 x 24 meters with 140 VLS , 3 x 127mm , 4 x 57mm as A2AD system in it self Arr...

Re: Current & Future Escorts - General Discussion

As I undrstand it, much of the high cost of T26 was the hull and gearbox designed for quietness with the mission of being a dedicated ASW hunter. Do we meed that on a ship intended to cover a AAW role? Indeed the noise canceling hull use on the type 26 hull and the fancy gearbox is not require on a...

Re: Current & Future Escorts - General Discussion

I think we are kidding ourselves if we think we are going to get any more than 6 Type 83 Destroyers. I suspect the Type 83 might be similar in size to the Zumwalt-class That is why i am suggesting that the RN should purchase some lower end AAW , even the biggest navy in the world the US navy won’t ...

Re: Current & Future Escorts - General Discussion

The best thing the RN can do is trying to establish a drumbeat of classes with double digit vessels and stop wasting money building in small batches. Indeed, If the Rn can get 13-15 T83 it would be the best outcome, but i am just afraid the tragedy of T45 will happen once again. The first thing the...

Re: Current & Future Escorts - General Discussion

A question come cross my mind recently, i am happy to see T83 will become the next AAW warship that replace the T45, but the price of that new ship might cause fewer number of ship will be purchase by the RN, i guess 8 will be the most possible number base on the T26 program, 10 will be better. But ...

Well I suppose if you disregard AUKUS, the FPDA, the Tempest partnership with Japan, the CPTPP which we're committed to joining, the 2 million UK citizens in Australia alone and our historical obligations to the people of Hong Kong then yes there's nothing really of interest in that part of the wor...

Re: Project Mosquito / Lightweight Affordable Novel Combat Aircraft (LANCA)

It seems the reason RAF talks about that they discovered a better options when developing the Mosquito is the BAE UAV The decision was informed by parallel analysis and capability experimentation conducted by the RAF and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl).

Re: Type 26 Frigate (City Class) (RN) [News Only]

It is totally unbelievable that they went from ahead of schedule 12 moth to behind 12 moth. And i assume the over budget cost will be pay by BAE them self from what i had read before right ?

Re: Type 26 Frigate (City Class) (RN) [News Only]

Is there a date the first Type 26 will be launched? An article said it will be second quarter of 2022 but it past already. And why the IOC will slip into 2028, i thought they were ahead of schedule for a year.
