Do you have any larger scans of the Franco-British or the Italian F3000?
Take a look at your email box
Overscan have a good idea when decides that every post here should reference its source. Several members here enjoy Universitary level and we are habituated with the bibliographic references in our professional life but not for our amateur research activities
...I must admit that I'm more professional since I'm here
This scans come from my "no reference recording era" so it is incomplete. Might our French friends give some help?. It is a Defence Magazine which initials are DAI (Defense et Aviation International?
It is number 111 Septembre/Octobre 1992, pg 72 and the author is Margareth Wildmoore
Highly automatization and stealthy features adopted. Standard Displacement: 3100 Tons. Lenght: 112,5 m. Width: 14,5 m. CODOG powerplant. Max speed: 34 knots. Max range: 5000 miles at 18 knots. Armament: 3x OTO Melara 76/62 Super rapido, 24x SeaWolf or Albatros (VLS), 8x OTOMAT Mk.2 and one helicopter (EH101 or NH90). A similar concept, the F1700 is mentioned but not fully described and no drawings are shown.
The light frigate F1700 would be armed in a modular basis to ensure a high degree of polyvalence.
Both designs are focused to the export market
There is no info about the Franco-British Frigate besides the drawing I posted.
In late 1992, after the NFR-90 program cancellation the most important European Frigate progams, according to the text, were:
Spanish F100 (ASM) and F110 (AA)
German-Nedeerland Type 124
Export Frigate programs:
Italian F3000 and F1700
British Yarrow 2000 ton frigate for Malaysia
British type Loch (2540 ton, 107,8 x 13,52 m)
French "Flexible" La Fayette (1000, 2000, 3000 ton in multiple versions)
Well, it is all I have. More data and pics will be welcome
