    :


    "The Hunter-class frigate has a displacement of about 9,700 tons full load and is 488-feet long, according to a Royal Australian Navy."

    !

    should I wait for one-hundred tubes?

    as I now noticed

    Royal Thai Navy's new Frigate FFG-471 HTMS Tachin Delivery Ceremony https://thaimilitaryandasianregion.blogspot.com/2018/12/royal-thai-navys-new-frigate-ffg-471.html

    relatively poorly armed if you asked me, plus, oops, according to https://bmpd.livejournal.com/3459090.html
    the Thais have ordered just five Harpoons and twenty-two ESSMs for her so far

    Do you have a chart showing missile tubes against ship costs, and missile volume against ship costs?

    They still use old school equipment! Goes to show you mechanical radars with parabolic dishes still have their place. They feature EO as well.

    They resemble the Type 344 radars used in the PLAN, the Type 344 did have roots to an earlier French design.

    Also as the Type 347 radar.

    Early version of STIR used within the MK 92 GFCS of the Oliver Hazard Perry class frigates.

    Building HMS Glasgow – the first Type 26 Frigate https://www.savetheroyalnavy.org/building-hms-glasgow-the-first-type-26-frigate/
    :

    "The schedule announced to Parliament earlier this year calls for HMS Glasgow to be accepted by the Royal Navy in the Summer of 2025 then conduct 18 months of trials and work up, before becoming fully operational by 2027."

    For the RN Type 26, its 48 tubes for Sea Ceptor missiles, and 24 tubes for Mk. 41. But hold on, Sea Ceptors are short to midrange missiles, like 25km, only 3.2 meters in length, 99kg in weight. An ESSM in comparison, is 280kg in weight. So those 48 VLS has to be small and shallow, in relation to a MK 41, and its only dedicated for that kind of missile. The VLS also looks weird and is referred to as a 'mushroom farm'. Four Sea Ceptors can be packed into a single MK. 41 tube so Sea Ceptor VLS cannot be compared one on one with a Mk. 41 on a direct basis.
