Default Re: RN Frigates: Type 31

I think that the comments from AVaites earlier could be correct - expect a lot of kit to be reused. The Danish Ivor Huitfeld class might give a clue. These are big modern hulls but full of old kit including 76mm guns and harpoon missiles etc. Currently even the CIWS system is a dummy. Looking at the diagram the MOD issued the other day for the Type 31 there is a big difference between the initial 'Core' systems and upgrades including gun size/ASW capability/missile fit etc.
