Can't help but wonder if the idea of naming the ships after Scottish towns is based on today's date?

Well with someone claiming they'll be the new Tribals which does follow Navy traditions and another claiming they'll be named after Scottish towns at a time when the first minister is determined to succeed where her predecessor failed, you have to question the second suggestion??

I thought you might lol. I for one am not bothered what they're called, but I do hope politics don't bring delays to them actually being built!

You can disregard both posts for reasons that are really to obvious to mention. Though a couple of years ago I did mention elsewhere that it would be nice to have another batch of Tribals.

The general consensus was that in these days of political correctness, it would be deemed in bad taste as it would reflect our 'Colonial past'

Make of that what you like.

Noise management system for the T26. Article from 'Navaltoday.Com' :-


BAE Systems contracts BKSV for Type 26 noise management
Type 26 frigate

The prime contractor for the construction of Royal Navy’s new Type 26 frigates has contracted Brel & Kjr to deliver a hull vibration monitoring system (HVME) for the new class of ships.

The system is supposed to reduce a ship’s radiated noise signature providing self-noise monitoring capabilities to ensure management of the ships acoustic signature.

Designed to replace the eight Anti-Submarine Warfare variant Type 23 frigates, the Type 26 will be a world-class ASW warship, designed to undertake a number of roles – from high-intensity warfare to humanitarian assistance – and will operate independently or as part of a task group.

Construction on the first ship in the class is expected to start this summer.

Brel & Kjr said their HVME system comprises a network of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) sensors, data acquisition, and vibration measurement/analysis and listening capabilities. Acoustic signature management is made by monitoring structure-borne noise, and presents vibro-acoustic information to aid ship staff in the control of machinery, hydrodynamic and propeller cavitation noise sources.

According to the company, the HVME provides control of the radiated sound of the ship via permanently installed sensor arrays mounted internally to the ships structure. HVME provides continuous vibration monitoring of the ship’s hull and assists crew in maintaining a low noise signature.

Whenever I read that a new item produced by our defence industry, for that in the main we mean BaE, is going to be "world class", I have the feeling that it is going to be over budget, late, and prone to breakdown.

In which case you should be happy as Bruel & Kjaer, are a Danish company

Maybe a reason to nationalise the shipbuilding industry as well as the utilities...?

Lockheed-Martin withdraws LRASM from competing in USN requirement. This would appear to be bad news for the T26/T31 programme, or does it make the the choice of an anti ship missile easier.

Obviously the missile will still be offered to future buyers apart from the US, but at what price. It would have been cheaper with a large US buy, but smaller production runs means higher prices. Doesn't look promising.

Kongsberg's NSM appears to be the winner. A joint Australian/Norwegian programme has, is developing the missile to fit internally into the F 35.
The price will almost certainly come down as the US, Australia, Norway and hopefully Britain cash in, in the case of the US for their surface units and for the others their air and surface units.

Yes the Kongsberg option does seem to be a winner, though I would go for the JSM version for the UK's T26 programme. That is if Lockheed-Martin have progressed the vertical launch version from a Mk41 silo, in which case it would seem to be ideal IMO.

It might even make the T26 more appealing to the Australian frigate project which the T26 has been shortlisted for. As you say higher numbers purchased mean more scope to lower the price.

If Labour gets elected on 8 June is it more or less likely that the RN will get its T26s and T31s?

Their SDR will no doubt decide if and how many.

Firstly labour will not get elected, secondly the question you need to ask is, whether we will get them if the Tory's are elected.
