If the flex decks floods uncontrollably then the vessel sinks. RN will not accept a Frigate that sinks if one single compartment floods.MikeKiloPapa wrote:also be quite interested to know exactly which areas you think needs redesign .
Additional compartmentalisation of the flex deck would solve the problem but that would require a major redesign.
If a T26 is so low in the water that the amidships mission space and hanger is flooding then the vessel is already lost. The flex deck is much closer to the waterline.MikeKiloPapa wrote:But lets say you are right that Absalon doesnt live up to the high RN standard....then where does that put the T26 with its large combined helo hangar/ mission space,?
How many compartments would need to flood to ensure that a T26 was so low in the water? Many more than one.
