the square represents 1.0 k-displacing Project 21631 (so called Buyan-M with eight so called Kalibrs: if you want to nitpick or don't know what I talk about, please skip reading this); 8 tubes in total

the circle symbol represents 2.5 k-displacing Project 20385 (8 Kalibrs, 16 cells of so called Redut: again, don't nitpick!); 24 tubes in total

the upward-pointing triangle symbol represents 3.6 k-displacing Incheon-II (8 Korean AShMs, 16 cells Korean VLS); 24 tubes in total

the downward-pointing triangle symbol represents 4.0 k-displacing Project 11356 (8 Kalibrs, 24 cells of so called Shtil: again, don't nitpick!); 32 tubes in total

the diamond symbol represents 4.1 k-displacing Type 054A (32 cells VLS; 8xC-803); 40 tubes in total

the left-pointing triangle symbol represents 5.4 k-displacing Project 22350 (16 Kalibrs, 32 cells of Redut: don't start nitpicking here); 48 tubes in total

the right-pointing triangle symbol represents 5.5 k-displacing KDX-II (32 cells of Mk 41 VLS, 32 cells of Korean VLS, 8 Korean AShMs); 72 tubes in total

the hexagon symbol represents 7.5 k-displacing Type 052D (64 cells VLS); 64 tubes in total

the star symbols represents 11.0 k-displacing KDX-III (80 cells of Mk 41 VLS, 32 cells of Korean VLS, 16 Korean AShMs); 144 tubes in total

and finally, the pentagon (sorry! LOL) symbol represents 12 k-displacing Type 055 with 112 cells VLS, 112 tubes in total


as you can see below, these ships MORE OR LESS follow the trend of ten tubes per one thousand metric tons of full displacement; they're WARSHIPS
fixed a keyboarding error (LOL) in the number of Project 11356 Shtil cells after I had noticed the claim

... poorly armed (domestic; B-) and properly armed (export; B+) variants of the Belharra:

here's a cool graphics with what I marked as "B+" above:

... but even if I see for example a view (of that Gowind) like this:

with the space ready for the expected missiles, I of course don't know it they won't sail with empty air anyway (because of not purchasing the missiles or something)

...
it appears the Gowinds will be acquired by the United Arab Emirates, too; I assume it's two hulls (I mean price without armament) for 750m euros:

I'd expect something like an additional half of billion euros for MICAs, Exocets, torps, guns

now ran an automatic translation of:
Les parties prenantes au programme FMAN (Futur Missile Anti-Navire) / FMC (Future Missile de Croisière) ou Future Cruise (FC) / Anti-Ship Weapon (ASW) auront à décider en 2020 des options retenues pour la ou les futures munitions. Sur le seul versant national, il en ressortira de lourdes et profondes conséquences quant au volume de la salve de la "ligne de bataille" française tant du point de vue du nombre de plateformes capables de lancer les missiles issus du programme FMAN/FMC que du nombre de ces missiles embarqués à bord de chacune des plateforme apte à les porter.
Stakeholders in the FMAN (Future Missile Anti-Ship) / FMC (Future Missile Cruise) or Future Cruise (FC) / Anti-Ship Weapon (ASW) program will have to decide in 2020 on options for the future munitions. On the national side alone, there will be heavy and profound consequences for the salvo volume of the French "battle line" both in terms of the number of platforms capable of launching missiles from the FMAN / FMC program and the many of these missiles aboard each platform capable of wearing them.

and that blogger's main points appear to be
  1. the need for A-70 Sylver VLS for a future AShM (as for the Scalp CM now), and
  2. a collaboration with the UK to procure such missile or missiles;
I think #1 would be fishy if true, and #2 should be abandoned, because the Royal Navy is broke

the aft superstructure of the Canadian graphics looks unsymmetric:

amazing what the BAE is able to pull:
Canada’s surface combatant project will cost C$4.6B per ship, new report finds
Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!

An updated estimate of the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) program indicates that the Canadian government is poised to pay C$8 billion more than initially expected to acquire a fleet of 15 new frigates.

According to the government’s new budget officer report, the total cost of the CSC program is C$69.8 billion (US$52.7 billion) over 26 years.

As outlined, the cost includes $5.3 billion for pre-production efforts, $53.2 billion for the construction of ships and $11.4 billion in project-wide costs.

When divided over a fleet of 15 new
Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!
, the cost of a single ship is brought to $4.6 billion.

For comparison, the 2017 PBO report estimated a total program cost of $61.8 billion, $8 billion less than the updated estimation. PBO said the difference in these estimates is due to the fact that ship construction would begin later (increasing inflation costs), in addition to the ship being larger than assumed in the previous report. The cost of spares beyond the initial two years was also excluded, reducing real program costs.

The primary cost driver, as explained in the report, is the weight of the ship. Ship displacement represents the primary factor in the model’s cost estimating relationships. The 2017 PBO report estimated project costs based on a 5,400 ton lightship weight, which was an estimate based on available designs for the CSC project at the time.

With the announced selection of the Type 26 design, a displacement of 6,790 tons represents a significant increase.

The report further stated that a one-year delay would increase the total program cost by almost $2.2 billion, a three percent increase, while a two-year delay would increase the total cost by almost $4.5 billion, representing a six percent increase.

The cost increases are not finite, however, as there is still possibility for cost overruns as the project enters the construction phase.

The Canadian government expects to start building the ships in the early 2020s, as the Halifax-class are set to start retiring in the 2030s. The Canadian Surface Combatants are being built as a replacement for the Canadian Navy’s Halifax-class frigates and Iroquis-class destroyers.

By selecting the BAE Systems’ Type 26 frigate design, Canada joined
