In short, only 5 parts will change
- foremast and radars on it
- Mk.41 VLS arrangement
- SSM on top of the mission bay
- and SH-60R handing
Some of those changes have the potential to be quite significant though. The energy and cooling requirements of the CEA radar suite (X, L and S band arrays) are likely to be multiples of that for the RN's Artisan, so have the potential to require changes to those systems. SH-60 handling will also include installation of ASIST as used in the Hobart Class. CMS changes will also extend to communications and data links, along with Nulka.
So far, there doesn't appear to be an official statement on the number of Mk.41 cells to be installed, although 32 seems the minimum.
