Manufacturing new 18 inch shells would be easier and quicker then designing and manufacturing new 16 inch triple turrets

But as the article Waterwings linked to says, where is the all the money going on Type 26 when its using stripped out systems from the Type 23s? If a River costs £348 million (and its a basic OPV) then it makes no sense that by adding a hangar, ballistic protection, more advanced electronic kit and...

I've always been against the idea of the Type 31 and it doesn't seem to be improving as a concept. £250 million per ship seems an arbitrary and low figure to aim for. Rather than propping up a dying industry with inferior ships (unless the yards can over-provide on capability versus cost) the MOD s...

Do the RN have to budget, one budget for the Normal operation, and a additional budget some are for investment. They do. However the MoD understands that there is nothing more permanent then a temporary solution. And any purchase of an interim Ship to ship missile would be seen as a direct threat t...

Thought the RN was withdrawing the surface Harpoon from 2019 onwards? in which case there will be no ship to ship weapon if they get problem with finding replacement, just over the pond, we have a plug in weapon... in Norway NSM, it's developed and tested so whats the point of using unnecessary res...

As far as more complex weapons go i imagine that the PDMS will be the converted Seawolf cells ripped directly from the T23s rather then the new build system planned for the T26s. And if any Anti-ship missile is fitted it will be the same tired old block one Harpoon that the T45s and T23s carry. Tho...

I think any system which is not currently in RN inventory will be automatically eliminated from consideration on T31 in an effort to keep to the hard price cap. I also think that gas turbine propulsion is out as well in favour of CODAD. And keeping the 4.5 for the first batch is not as bad as it may...
