A mere $778,000 ... which is why we only conduct a live firing every two years ! Some taxpayers have made a few sour comments I believe !

And they are they taxpayers that complain when our armed forces aren't up to scratch when a job needs doing...

Taken in March 2007 alongside in Nelson, South Island, if memory serves. It was open to the public and we had a grand walk through many parts of the ship, including the bridge, flight hangar, ablutions and heads, galley, very informative and friendly crew.

An Australian MRH-90 approaches HMNZS TE KAHA’s flight deck for their first approach during Exercise OCEAN EXPLORER, marking their first landing on any Anzac-class frigate, including the RAN’s eight Anzac-class frigates. The MRH-90 helicopter is a much larger helicopter than the RNZN is used to operating off the flight decks of HMNZ Ships, adding a challenge to both HMNZS TE KAHA’s flight deck team, and also the crew of the helicopter. In addition, ENDEAVOUR performs its ever-vital role of keeping TE KAHA refuelled during exercises.

HMNZS ENDEAVOUR gets close up with HMNZS TE KAHA for a refueling at sea during Exercise OCEAN EXPLORER.

Several questions seeking a response should anyone reading this thread care to nip across to the 'Other Naval Topics' forum - 'Masts for Sensors - Not for Sails' thread, post #269 titled:-

Anzac Class Frigates folding mast on Bridge Roof

A folding mast with what appear to be two vertically separated Navigation or Working lights.


Thanks in advance,

The RNZN is "finally" replacing its Sea Sparrow missiles with "Sea Ceptor" when its two Anzac's get their upgrades in Canada - thereby ensuring resupply problems if the ships operate with their closest allies (Australia) and friends (US), neither of whose navies operate the latter system.

New Zealand is loaning Te Kaha to the USN to fill the hole left by the damage to USS Fitzgerald:

HMNZS Te Kaha and New Zealand have extended their support to the United States in the aftermath of the collision between the USS Fitzgerald and Philippines container ship ACX Crystal, echoing the support the US Navy provided New Zealand during the Kaikoura earthquake.
Seven US sailors died and the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer sustained significant damage in the 17 June collision. Defence Minister Mark Mitchell extended the Government’s condolences on the tragedy.
"Our thoughts are very much with the bereaved families and the crew of the USS Fitzgerald after this terrible event," he says.
Given Te Kaha is currently nearby, we are in a position to offer support," Mr Mitchell says.
The United States has accepted the offer. Te Kaha’s role will be to contribute to the security and protection of the USS Nimitz Carrier group.

Oldish news and the replacement issue has been a concern for many since our closest ally that will have it is on the other side of the planet.

Also unsure in the number of missiles NZ will hold in stock?
