Royal Navy Type 26 Frigate
« on: June 24, 2010, 05:02:33 am »
With the Future Surface Combatant finally progressing into a more formal design project to become the Type 26 firgate, there have been a number of CGI images and articles appearing in the press recently. This is a 4 year study with the first ships due to start building in 2016 and will form the basis of our replacements for the Type 23 Duke class.

Just wondering if members have seen any further details on this design including line drawing's and CGI images, as would make an interesting model to accompany the CVF and the Type 45. I know that the japanese 'Ships of the World' magazine has a rather nice side view CGI which i haven't seen elsewhere, which would be handy in working out the proportions on the initial design.

Cheers

Geoff

If it's in the latest edition of "Ships of the World" I could try and get a photo of it.

This CGI is from BAE website, the notes are mine (sorry, in spanish...). In the same site ('Media' or something like that) you can find other high resolution renders.


This other was posted some time ago in Warship1 forum:

No problem ;)

Ca˝ˇn de 127 mm = 127 mm gun

Silos para missiles crucero = cruise missile silos

┐lanzatorpedos? = torpedo tubes?

lanzase˝uelos = decoy launchers

hangar principal = main hanger

hangar auxiliar (varios UAV) = auxiliary hanger (several UAV)

Obviously, the right translation, but the caption is wrong. Those are not torpedo tubes, they're launch tubes for floating "Rubber Duck" type decoys (as described in Friedman's World Naval Weapon Systems).

I found this over at Militaryphotos.net. It's edited excerpts from a video apparently released by BAE systems and is supposed to show the latest incarnation of the Type 26 design. I think it may actually be the Type 27 design, although, I had thought that was on ice:

Nope thats the revised Type 26 design as they had a presentation on it early this year, looks like the mission bay has gone from the stern under the flight desk into the side of superstructure as the flight deck is now lower than in earlier concept designs.
