    Got dark here at 1930. All you'll see is 2 white mast lights and a green light. Later, you'll only see a white stern light

    It is the optical FCS fitted to all ships in the class, although I do notice she has a new Kelvin Hughes Sharpeye X-band radar fitted.

    Kelvin Hughes radars were always a UK choice. This one has a lot of innovation being magnetron and waveguide free. Built in target analysis at operational ranges is said to remove need for transponders for Helicopter tracking. The transceiver is in the rotator housing at mast height . More than one PPI can be used simultaneously at different ranges and mode. Given that it is solid state, let's hope all the bits are from secure sources or have bee adequately tested before integration in the system
