    The conversion thing is fine IMO.

    And I'd keep a decent rader - be that Smart-S like the Absalon or TRS-4D (my preference). As for why AOR - I refer you back to Sparky:...

    The Norwedian AOR with massive hospital - better than RFA Argus actually - is 300M$. That's what I'd be after. The Berlins for the Canucks are 1.1 G$ each. I dunno why. Italy is buying a LHD for that...

    re: CIWS, that is what 76mm Strales is and what the MM uses it for. And I want to stick it on because we will probably still use her to patrol the EEZ.

    That brings me back to the AOR idea. The Norwegian ship has a better hospital than RFA Argus and a follow-on order would presumably be a fair bit cheaper than the first unit....
