    Here is the video of a Merlin being brought into the hanger of a Type 22 Frigate.

    I showed this to an RN sailor of all folks wo said it would not fit.

    It ws hard to find the documentation...but this one cleared that up nicely.

    Interesting

    New Type 26 will have multi mission bay

    It will be able to carry 1 x merlin and 2 x wildcats or 2 x merlin

    That is a very good ASW

    The solution is stupidly obvious. The UK and France should pool together R&D of the nuclear submarine deterrent including the missiles.
    Unfortunately no government in the UK or France will do it.

    The French and UK have basically the same requirements in terms of nuclear submarines. While sharing with the US is more work, because the US typically has different requirements, still even sharing the missile R&D with the US beats doing everything alone.

    The UK and US already have a common missile and missile launch tube for the next SSBNs of both nations.
