    Worlds leading weapon systems manufacturers are in competition among each other on UK MoD's contract for its new surface to surface anti ship and coastal attack missile.

    Anti-ship missiles: The UK MoD issued a requirement to implement an interim surface to surface guided weapon (I-SSGW) to replace the existing Harpoon missile on board Royal Navy ships. In this context we interviewed some exhibitors about their proposals.

    0:42 - Raytheon Naval Strike Missile
    2:12 - Saab RBS 15 Mk3 and Mk4
    2:59 - MBDA future missile concepts and FCASW
    3:55 - Lockheed Martin LRASM
    5:06 - Roketsan ATMACA
    5:30 - SubSea Craft Lifts Veil on VICTA-class Diver Delivery Unit

    posting without comment this part of
    Naval shipbuilding: September 2019 update https://researchbriefings.parliament.uk/ResearchBriefing/Summary/CBP-8665#fullreport
    :

    "Type 31 frigates

    The Shipbuilding Strategy laid out plans for a new class of five Type 31e frigates. These would have a price cap of £250m per vessel and the first in class expected in the water in 2023. The design and build will be open to competition amongst UK yards.

    The aggressive timetable laid out in the strategy has slipped slightly. After the competition was briefly suspended in summer 2018, the MOD awarded competition design phase contracts to three consortia. In September 2019 the MOD identified the Babcock-led consortia as its preferred bidder. A formal contract award is expected later in 2019 with manufacture to begin in 2021 and the first ship scheduled for launch in 2023.

    The vessels will be assembled at Babcock's Rosyth yard. Babcock's shipbuilding plan had originally envisaged manufacture activities being shared out between Babcock at Rosyth, the Harland and Wolff yard in Belfast, and Ferguson Marine Engineering on the Clyde, but this is now in doubt. Babcock identified only its Rosyth yard in the official announcement – this is where the frigates will be assembled. Babcock has since said H&W and Ferguson Marine can bid for work but there is no guarantee they will be awarded a contract. Workers are hoping contracts will give the yards a lifeline.

    The design and build contract is expected to be awarded by the end of 2019, with manufacture to begin in 2021 and the first ship scheduled for launch in 2023."

    the USNI News made my day, inside
    Arrowhead Wins Cost Battle in U.K. Type-31 Frigate Competition https://news.usni.org/2019/09/23/arrowhead-wins-cost-battle-in-u-k-type-31-frigate-competition
    :

    "By acquiring five Arrowheads for just $1.6 billion each, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) and Royal Navy are getting a lot of more tonnage for their money."

    "each" being a Freudian slip, I guess, as pretty normal price for one modern and well-armed frigate would indeed be in that range, except the RN appears to believe in miracles and acquires five for the price of one ... the RN on the way to mediocrity!
