    With their large and modern Navy, boasting two Aircraft carriers, with their bringing on of the F-35A and B, and with their strong Air Force and Army, it is past time we had an Italian Military News Thread.

    I will start this thread with this news:

    6th Italian FREMM Frigate Starts Sea Trials

    Sixth-Italian-Navy-FREMM-frigate-starts-sea-trials.jpg
    The Italians have been pumping out their FREMMs...now having six of a planned ten in the water.

    France has three in the water.

    Though to be fair, France has also built one for Morocco and one for Egypt which are in commission...so they have really launched five. But only three for themselves at this point that have been launched.

    BAE SYSTEMS

    BAE Systems has signed a contract with the Commonwealth Government to further refine its design of the Type 26 Global Combat Ship (GCS) for the Royal Australian Navy under the SEA 5000 (Future Frigate) program.

    BAE Systems Australia Chief Executive, Glynn Phillips, said: “We look forward to demonstrating the adaptability and maturity of the Global Combat Ship design to meet Australia’s requirements for an Anti-Submarine Warship frigate. The Global Combat Ship design is the most modern, adaptable and flexible of all possible options available today, and I am confident that we will be able to demonstrate that it is the best able to meet the requirements of the Royal Australian Navy.”

    In coming months, a team of BAE Systems’ Australian engineers will be deployed to the UK to join the Company’s established design team. Being embedded into the one of the most advanced warship building teams in the world will allow these engineers to acquire the skills and knowledge required to effectively transfer the technology to Australia.

    BAE Systems is using the latest in modern digital planning capability to refine and tailor its designs to the Commonwealth of Australia’s requirements. To assist this process, the Company has revealed that, a 3-dimensional visualisation suite will be delivered to Australia to help improve understanding of the unique features of the ship design. This will enable conversations about design modifications the Royal Australian Navy requires and will help demonstrate how the Global Combat Ship could accommodate the required CEA Technologies’ phased-array radar system.

    This is part of the Australian Department of Defence’s Competitive Evaluation Process for the program. The Commonwealth has also entered into similar agreements with Fincantieri and Navantia.

    The Global Combat Ship is the most adaptable and flexible design and best suited to meet the operational requirements of the Royal Australian Navy.

    BAE Systems is one of the world’s leading designers, builders and systems integrators of naval ships and submarines. BAE Systems Australia has been building, upgrading and maintaining the Royal Australian Navy’s surface fleet for more than 30 years.

    BAE Systems is currently supporting and upgrading the ANZAC Class Frigates, sustaining the largest ships in the fleet – the Landing Helicopter Docks, as well as the Adelaide Class Frigates, Minehunters and the Hydrographic Fleet.

    A nice Navy of 3th rank with much new and very good combattants Doria, Bergamini but these one have a SAM load low only 16 missiles and one very large defects of these ammunitions in VLS they require to go through a port for the silos can be recharged. Reloading of tubes is still not passable at sea.

    Unboubtely a huge disadvantage to fix in the futur the port are not always close...

    Launcher with magazine not easy at sea but possible reload but power, rate of fire inferior.
