    Looks awful. I would rather have an Horizon frigate.

    Today at 6:46 AM now NavalToday:
    Spain authorizes EUR 4.3B for construction of five F-110 frigates https://navaltoday.com/2019/04/02/spain-authorizes-eur-4-3b-for-construction-of-five-f-110-frigates/
    apparent lack of a CIWS adds to the misery

    now noticed Russians promised (https://flotprom.ru/2019/СевернаяВерфь12/) 24 Kalibrs for units #5, #6 of Project 22350

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

    now became aware of
    #537 erlen, Today at 2:15 AM
    :
    and while drinking my early morning coffee I can see two VLS arrays with 4*8 cells in each, and four quadruple launchers of presumably AShMs, so
    64+16=80 tubes would make her properly armed according to me considering the displacement of 7k, but let's wait and see if they ever build https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TF2000-class_frigate

    I find this destroyer-frigate an item of interest, especially with its radar layouts.

    CAFRAD UMR --- S-band search and track radar. This is located on the deck house below the bridge. According to Aselsan PDF, has a range of 450km and can track over 2000 targets.

    CAFRAD AMR --- X-band illumination radar. For SARH missiles. Located below the bridge in the deck house but higher than the UMR. Another set of UMR and AMR are located at the back. Range max at 150km.

    CAFRAD AYR --- X-band for air and horizon surface search, sea skimmer detection and tracking. Located at the top integrated mast. Range max at 150km.
