Thanks everyone for the feedback and kind words! I'll make some changes based on the issues brought up.

Small complaint - the CEAFAR mast is necessarily six-sided rather than eight-sided (or more precisely, the angles of the forward and aft arrays are +-60deg rather than +-45deg). I'd fiddle with the mast a bit to indicate it's not structurally identical to the various SPY-1/TRS-4D/etc. variants.
I did make some changes to the shape but in hindsight not very effectively so I'll look in to modifying it better.
Only sidenote on the canada variant.
Smart s and apar in the mast mast is a bit to much.
Plus they are both surface search radars with only the apar being a director and tds.
You also put american directors next to it, the aoar makes them obsolite.
I suggest removing the directors and add a aerial search radar in the place of the smart s.
Or replace the apar for one
Fair enough, do you have any suggestions to replace Smart-S? I was under the impression it was both air and surface search? I didn't want to use Smart-L since I thought it might be a bit overkill for a smallish frigate not specialising in air warfare.
