Anecdotally, they'd love to have VL-ASROC if they could make the cash work.Still confused about about why they would pay to integrate this missile with two different types of VLS when they could have just put Sylver in the T26. Possibly FC/ASW is actually meant to fire from deck-mounted box launchers? But if so, what the heck is the Mk 41 for?
I'd presume they want the option to sell it to both Sylver and Mk41 customers, and while France will insist on Sylver there's more Mk41 customers out there. Though that still leaves the question of why they'd go Mk 41 in Type 26 unanswered, unless there's something else that only fits in Mk41 that the RN has its eye on.
