First try here in SB, an AU destroyer escort/frigate, commissioned in the mid-1960s. Cheers :)

Looks like a very well thought out escort. Nicely drawn too.

First of all great first post, nice ship and welcome to SB.

I want to know about the ASW weapons, I know Hedgehog survived well past it's prime in minor navies, but the depth charges next to guided torpedoes seem outright anachronistic, did they just linger around from a previous fit?

Thank you sir :) Regarding the torpedo tubes, there were ships of the same category and of the same era that were fitted with both the depth charges and torpedoes. I think i got the wrong torpedoes, those should be the Mk.44 :)

The closest ship for me with similar Radar and weapon outfit are Oslo Class frigates (escort), although they primarily was build as a anti-submarine frigate they are good escort frigates of the 60's to 80's
