Just a heads up on something quite interesting.

FMS of MK 41 Vertical Launch Systems May Indicate Purchase of LCS or DDG by Saudi Arabia

quote:


The recent (and very low profile) announcement by the U.S. Department of Defense of a Foreign Military Sale (FMS) of MK 41 Vertical Launching Systems (VLS) to Saudi Arabia could possibly be an indication of the procurement of Littoral Combat Ships or DDG-51 type (Burke class) Destroyers by the Royal Saudi Navy. Here is Navy Recognition's take on it.

I can't wait to find out what type of ship hides behind this MK41 FMS

All the best toys for Saudis... Shah's Iran history comes to mind
But I wouldn't rule out Aegis Ashore like system personally..

Can the LCS be outfitted with Mk. 41s? If it can, then it would be a valuable addition to the LCSes already in service with its native navy.

Aegis Ashore would make lot of sense for Saudis.
