    G&C proposal for the RAN.

    Tower is apparently a flight IIA but taller, hull is new, bit shorter, less crew, strengthened holl for Southern Ocean work etc.

    Lovely new toy for the Navy types.

    Not really, the production version won't have the big red rat on the stack, it's more they want to identify it as Australian than anything else.

    the aegis system is fucking incredible. the SPY 1D (what we had on the Ross) is far and away the best ship mounted air search radar on earth.

    Depends on who you are and where you are, I tried to ship XXXX to a USAF type that remembered it from his youth and both times it got confiscated.

    If you're a serviceman I might be convinced to try again...

    I'm in the USN and while I truly appreciate the sentiment have to confess that I was only kidding. Mind you I would kill for some VB I know just how painful customs can be and that it's not worth the trouble for you or myself. So thank you, but I will have to pass.

    Now back on topic, the Hobart Class looks very promising. Should be one hell of an upgrade from the FFGs.

    Ok no worries.

    And yeah, the RAN will pretty much be replaced over the next decade, ANZACs are actually getting the kind of fit out they should have had from the start, Collins class getting a new combat suite and torpedos, Armidales just came online, AWDs (RAN wants six, 3 are confirmed), LHDs, new supply ship (to be HMAS Sirius) etc etc.
