    Also the RAN is currently putting all its ANZAC though another, mid-life, upgrade, the first ship being completed late last year. So Perth will be in the queue for that.

    To be fair, the Canadians always envisaged that 6 to 8 ships would be procured as announced back in 2007. The recently announced additional two take the program total to 8. A lot of factors would...

    A lot less capability? Not really, but fewer VLS cell sure.

    But on a total cost the government basis (net of tax receipts ), the local build of a small class of only three ships would still be...

    What's also interesting is that the RN went wth Mk 41 VLS and Mk45 Mod 4 gun for their ships. While the Australian navy has had these in service for some time, they'll both be new to the RN...

    It will be interesting to see how many Mk-41 VLS cells are fitted. Models and graphics seem to show 32, but there looks to be space for double that which would be more than the AWDs. There also...

    Almost an evolved Hobart class, with search and fire control radar technology from the 2010s rather than the 1960s, and an additional helo or UAV.

    The 'future frigates' to be procured under Sea 5000 will actually be more capable ships, particularly in terms of anti-air, so the chances of an additional Hobart class are zero.

    Keep in mind that the RAN ships have been upgraded through a series of separately funded projects. The last of these will see the installation of a phased array long range L-Band search radar to...
