Do you have any larger scans of the Franco-British or the Italian F3000?
JohnR said:I think if anything the Franco British Frigate looks more like an early vestion of FREMM than Horizon.
pometablava said:Frigate F3000
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
pometablava said: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
RP1 said:Very interesting Pometablava.
DKB mentions the France-UK-Netherlands Frigate that arose from NFR-90, the "FUN". He also mentions that the Head of Concept in the UK developed his own ideas. The FF shown may be a french equivalent, as it shows the design ideas to emerge in the La Fayette and FREMM class. I think I've seem that image in an issue of Janes also.
This is a necroposting and I do beg for forgiveness, but do you still have that larger scans of Franco-British frigate?
