It may not necessarily be the best ever warship, but after some consideration of built and unbuilt warships, I choose the Type 12 Leander frigate.
It dominated the Royal Navy line-up for over two decades between the 60s and the 80s. With a capable main gun armament and ASW fit of helicopter and limbo it was only let down by the cheap and cheerful Seacat anti-aircraft system replacing the 40mm gun.
But in a period where the Cold War fortunately never went hot the Leander symbolised the RN operating around the world.

Seacat 2 would have been a great fit with the Leander-class frigates.
