Well my schedule for the weekend was stirred up a bit, so I only got time to make it this far:
As you can see I mainly focused on the main radars of the ship. As Colombamike pointed out by the time these ships are built the radars will have evolved even further. The design shows four large phased array radars (which will function as the main 3D air search radar), accompanied by several smaller radar arrays such as an surface search radar and extra S-band air search radar. Not that these are placed on as well the forward and aft superstructure. Above and underneath the large arrays are the ICAS, UHF/VHF and IFF systems.
The weapons lay-out is still a WIP. For the VLS layout I was inspired by the south-korean navy, who have their VLS placed up pretty high. This ship will initially only be fitted with 16 tactical-length VLS cells, but this setup provides a lot of growth margin (48cells, strike length). For guns I went with a 76mm Strales gun (don't ask my why, but I like the idea that it can be used against fast moving areal targets) and several smaller automated 12.7mm guns (based on the Hitrole). I also installed my version of the improved Goalkeeper, although its firing-arc has been somewhat reduced.
Last but not least 8 anti-ship missiles (Harpoon Block II or similar) and of course the trusty torpedoes.
I was told by MC'spoilt that a German defense company has developed a hard-kill anti-torpedo system called the SeaSpider.

Maybe something I will incorporate into the design later on.
And remember, still a very much WIP, but constructive criticism is of course more than welcome
