Upon rethinking the T43, I realized that for a carrier escort in particular, it really needed more long range capability. Plus I wasn't too happy with the dome, it was a bit too seventies for a ship which wouldn't hit the water until late eighties, early nineties.
Even as the USN struggled to upgrade it's legacy AN/SPG-59 series of radars, the Royal Navy decided to go with a familiar solution. Dutch Signaal and British Ferranti worked together once more, and produced a state-of-the-art solution: two electronically scanned Phased Arrays into one massive rotating installation, the MkII Broomstick radar.
The Type 43 turned out to be massively expensive, but also massively competent. Combining two 40 round Typhon LR launchers with two Harpoon launchers, an OTO compact gun, and at first two Phalanx (quickly replaced with SeaStreak launchers when they became available), the Type 43 was a very capable warship. Two light or one medium helicopter would fit in the port side hangar.
Because of the limited firing arc of the Seastreak installation, a Goalkeeper was later added, almost as an afterthought. Crews tended to refer to the Goalkeeper installation as the outhouse.
As for the Dutch, the Tromp class would muddle on for nearly a decade longer before the first of their new Typhon ships hit the water. Equipped with the same mighty MkII Broomstick as the Type 43, the Zeven Provincien featured only two trainable phased array target illuminators, four targets to be designated per radar, for a total of eight simultaneous terminal engagements and 24 missiles controlled in the air.
Armaments consisted of a 40 round Typhon LR launcher, a 40 round Typhon MR, an american 127 mm cannon, a single Goalkeeper, and eight harpoon missiles. A single mediu-sized helicopter could be embarked.
