    Nice ships. This news will be well received in the Vancouver marine industry. A number of related/supporting programs and activities have been held in juggling mode waiting for a decision.

    These are a very good German design and will fill the Canadian needs very admirably. In addition to being built in Canada, and I am sure, with specific Canadian requirements.

    20,000 tons. Armed with four 27mm autocannons and Stinger MANPADS, they have a large helo deck and a hanger to accomodate two helos, and they can be equipped with a very decent sized hospital as needed.

    Looks like two 20mm Phalanx CIWS for self defense.

    I guess the hanger is the standard size of the other German vessels.

    As I said, thy look like a really decent design for the Canadians.

    The Germans sized their hangar for a Sea King, so for us, as we will have the CH-148's, they will fit with some modifications to the layout. Also note the different RAS arrangement, only 1 deck crane, addition of 2 landing craft, and changes to the lifeboat arrangement. I don't know what other changes have been made to the design, but that's the most visible changes other than the inclusion of Phalanx.

    Amen to that NavyReco. we want to give our talented SD posters credit where it is due and move people's reading to their sites whenever we can for sure.

    And nice renderings that are!

    Do you know, will there be any more weapons systems? Like perhaps a couple of Mk-38 25mm guns, or certainly some .50 cal (12.7mm) machine guns?

    Probably some .50 cal machine guns and some small arms. I know the Navy was testing remote weapons systems in the past, but nothing's came of it.

    ThyssenKrupp won the contest not based upon features, but on costs; the military believed that implementation costs would be 15% less with an off-the-shelf design, so that was the only contender offering enough contingency funding for an executable project. The competitor, depending on which stage of the competition was first the Spanish Cantabria Class AOR's, but that proposal was unsuccessful. It was then followed by BMT Fleet Technology with a version of their Aegir class AOR's, which a version is going to be built for the Royal Fleet Auxiliary as the Tide Class support tankers.
