    Answered on: 10 April 2019
    Further to the commitments in Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015, and subsequently endorsed by the Modernising Defence Programme, the UK is investing in a ground-based radar, which will enhance NATO's Ballistic Missile Defence system. We are also investigating further the potential of the Type 45 Destroyers to operate in a Ballistic Missile Defence role. We will continue to support research and development initiatives and multinational engagement through the UK's Missile Defence Centre.

    instead of saying the Royal Navy has no money for weapons

    I haven't seen any single supporter of 'autonomous systems' mentioning they'd turn into pretty expensive trash once the comms were lost (perhaps it can't happen according to those supporters hahaha)

    the USN for example

    Did you think I was suggesting the USN would buy warships from foreign yards?

    The competition requires what's classed as a mature design, i was merely stating that mature design could mean a variety of things. I was joking and suggesting that in the water and almost built is more mature than not in the water :).
