Pretty nice! the only remark I really have is that the Mk 41 self defence length might be newer then this design, an Mk 48 launcher might be a better fit.

Seems like a sensible enough design. I think 32 knots is awfully optimistic on CODAD, though.

Thanks Sir! I actually preferred the Mk41 over the Mk48 launcher :)

Hey, another AU frigate! Hope you like it! Cheers :D

She is armed with one 76mm gun, 16-cells Mk.48 Mod. 2 VLS for RIM-7P Sea Sparrows, 2 x quad Harpoons, one Phalanx CIWS, and two triple torpedo tubes. Sensors include a MW-08 3D surveillance radar, DA-08 targeting/air search radar, two STIR 180 for the SAMs and the main gun, navigation radars, and a sonar. She is fitted with a helipad and hangar for Westland Lynx ASW helicopters.

This was a late-90s design for my AU.

Thanks in advance for any comments! :)
