Removing the non per-unit oriented costs gives us a hull price of around $2.7B. Which is around the same cost as the Australian program for the same ship. Have in mind that said costs are said to be inclusive as regards to operations and maintenance over the life of the ships.

Certainly not cheap, but not outrageously so.

what on Earth your sentence

"Have in mind that said costs are said to be inclusive as regards to operations and maintenance over the life of the ships."

is supposed to mean?!

have you ever read about "$53.2 billion for the construction of ships"

if obtained, it'd bring them pretty much exactly on the line ((24+32)/5.4 is 10.4 (rounded)) LOL

I got to say, I don't understand the point of the bow. That double bow, anyone knowledgeable explain the pros and cons please.
allegedly the waterline Hull length and shape can be kept optimized for higher speed and/or lower fuel consumption due to lower wave drag. all without having to have the whole ship as long, meaning savings in weight.

"... an unusual looking sharp protrusion out from the bow near the water level.
"This simply extends the length of the vessel at the waterline, improving wave resistance without increasing the dimensions of the ship," the source said."

It's a similar idea to that French frigate on the previous page, though perhaps a bit cruder (it has less internal volume in the bow, but likely presents less of a challenge to keep water from washing over the bow in heavy seas, with essentially a conventional bow geometry set further back). In both cases you get more water line length per length over all, for lower drag.

the chart from #4
:

at that time the Type 055 armament was unknown, so I used 128 tubes
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
