Sirs, (Ma’ams) Ladies and Gents, good evening and welcome to my presentation on the replacement for the Type 23 frigate.
Here’s the range for tonight, with some time for questions at the end.
The MoD requested a design for a replacement back in 1998.
Multiple designs were put forward - French-Italian design.
Monday the MoD placed a contract for initial major parts.
Here is the final design, very sleek.
Despite having a larger displacement and more length – maintains similar range and equal speed.
COMBINED DIESEL-ELECTRIC OR GAS
Fundamental for anti-submarine operations
ARTisan for ADVANCED RADAR TARGET INDICATION SITUATIONAL AWARENESS AND NAVIGATION
Tracks targets as small as a cricket ball travelling at Mach 3.
Nothing compared with Type 45’s SAMPSON radar. (400 km)
Active – pings to seek targets
Passive – just listens
SCOT-5 – Communicates with British Skynet satellites.
Standard ammunition – easier to source
Challenger 2 – HESH example
COMMON ANIT-AIRCRAFT MODULAR MISSILE
British forces universal anti-aircraft missile.
60 km tested range.
Nothing compared with Sea Viper – Type 45 – Aster 30 (120 km)
Adaptive Vertical Launching System for surface warfare missiles.
Final line of defence against sea skimming anti-ship missiles.
Picture (right) of a missile hit 6 times.
4,500 rounds/min – 75 rounds/sec
Additional VLS for Sea Ceptor only, for targets aft – no mast.
Automatic – controlled from opps room.
Short range AA and Small surface vessels.
Brand new Lynx Wildcat – fastest helicopter in the world.
Vital UAV – HMS President example
Larger hangar compared with 23
Multipurpose mission bay
Humanitarian aid space
Extra RIBs for special forces operations
Rear door for rapid deployment of RIBs or Sonar.
