So the ANZACs will most likely have a "small ship" system fitted. https://www.defenceconnect.com.au/ma...class-frigates
        What is quite interesting about the RAN ANZAC upgrade programme is that it is creating continuance and further development through to the Hunters of Australian technical prowess and research such as CEAFAR and CEAMOUNT. The end result is that even when these vessels start to get decommissioned and crews cross over to the new Hunter Class they will still have reasonable life and warfare capability left in them if they are sold or transferred to a second Navy. Particularly the first two or three.

          A RAN fact sheet on the new Hunter Class Type 26 (GCF-A) has been released.

          Will use MT-30 and MTU like its City Class cousin.

            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 resulting in a two different guns and an additional VLS system being used across the fleet. Does the RN currently have any missiles that can be used with the Mk41?

                Morrison aka Mr Angry he did a very hard hitting video interview after allegations some of his officers had been distributing indecent images and videos of female soldiers. Well worth watching.

                  A highly transphobic news article. Don't see the point of the criticism. As long as they wear appropriate uniform while doing their job, each to their own.

                      When a gay man writes a sketch about camp soldiers, its OK to laugh. Its like when an african american says the N word.
                      Also, camp and trans are not the same thing. Many trans aren't even gay.

                        In a major development for Australia’s $35 billion Hunter Class frigate program, an interim contract has been struck between the Commonwealth and BAE Systems Australia.

                              AUSTAL Australia Awarded A$324 Million Contract To Build Six Cape Class Patrol Boats

                              https://euro-sd.com/2020/05/news/171...s-patrol-boat/



                              Jack Richardson
                              Austal Australia has been awarded a A$324 million contract to design and construct six evolved CAPE class Patrol Boats (CCPBs) for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). The six new vessels, to be constructed at Austal’s Henderson shipyard in Western Australia, will add to the RAN’s existing fleet of two CCPB’s delivered in 2017, meaning this announcement extends Austal’s CCPB programme to a total of 18 vessels, including eight patrol boats operated by the Australian Border Force (ABF) and two currently under construction for the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard.
                              Austal’s Chief Executive David Singleton said of the new contract, which is the largest for an Australian vessel construction programme ever awarded to Austal in the Company’s 30 year history, reaffirmed the CAPE class as Australia’s pre-eminent patrol boat platform and represented a clear commitment by the Australian Government to strengthen Australia’s sovereign shipbuilding industry during a challenging global environment brought on by the Coronavirus pandemic.
                              “Since its introduction by the Australian Border Force (ABF) in 2013, the CAPE class has proven to be a high-performing, reliable and effective maritime asset, utilised for a wide variety of constabulary and naval missions, playing a critical role in Australia’s national security,” Mr Singleton said. “With ten CAPES currently in operation with the ABF and RAN, it is a smart, logical step to build upon the existing fleet with additional vessels that will enhance the nation’s ability to protect and secure our maritime borders,” he added.
                              Crew capacity has been increased by 10 people to 32, and quality-of-life provisions have been enhanced, ensuring those who operate the new Capes have connectivity to the outside world, regardless of the operating environment. Further improvements have been incorporated into the new vessels, developed during the design and construction of two CCPBs for the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard. This was an export contract awarded on 16th August 2019 and won with the strong support of the Australian Government and Export Finance Australia, with the vessels currently in an advanced state of construction and scheduled for delivery later in 2020.
                              Construction of the six CAPES for the RAN will commence immediately at Austal’s shipyard in Henderson, Western Australia, with deliveries scheduled from September 2021, then successively through to mid-2023. Austal has designed, constructed and sustained the Commonwealth of Australia’s entire fleet of patrol boats since 1998; including the BAY, ARMIDALE and CAPE class operated by the RAN and ABF, comprising 32 vessels.

                                Royal Australian Navy First Offshore Patrol Vessel Arafura coming together.
                                The Morrison Government’s Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) program has reached another milestone with the two halves of the first Arafura Class OPV coming together to form a complete hull.

                                In a further milestone for the Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) program, the two halves of the first of class ship, Arafura, built by Luerssen Australia and its partner ASC have been brought together and welded to form a complete hull. It marks the largest industrial manoeuvre at Osborne Naval Shipyard in South Australia.
                                Minister for Defence, Senator the Hon Linda Reynolds CSC said the Australian Naval Infrastructure (ANI) operations team manoeuvred the two mega-blocks of the ship together, weighing 1,000 tonnes in total, with only millimetres between them.

                                The first of the OPVs, Arafura, is planned to enter service from the early 2020’s and will conduct border protection and maritime patrol missions alongside other Australian and regional partners.
                                “The OPV program is delivering benefits across Australia, with the first two vessels under construction at Osborne in South Australia and the remaining 10 vessels to be built at Henderson in Western Australia.”

                                The program of 12 vessels will replace and improve upon the capability delivered by the Armidale Class and Cape Class Patrol Boats.
