Not news but an opinion. Looking at the FFG-X program I am convinced the winner will be the legend class derived patrol frigate. The independence derivative will be unable to mound hull sonar due to its water jets same as the independence class. The Alvaro de bazan class is too short range and already took expensive for the programs price cap so even removing aegis would put it too high over the price when the other changes are considered. FREMM is a potential candidates but simply put too big at 6700 tons. Only the legend class derivative is built in the us has the range required fits the size wanted and can be made for the right price


FFG(X) has no requirement for a hull sonar, the Independence derivative doesn't use water jets, there is no size requirement listed, and the range of the de Bazan is 4500nm at 18 knots compared to the Burke's range of 4400nm at 20 knots. The last Frigate concept HII displayed (PF 4921) had a range of 8000nm at around 10 knots, and had only a fraction of the sensors and weapons specced for FFG(X). The base NSC also already costs around $750m with its austere sensor and weapons fit - around $100m more than an LCS.

I don't recall any direct mention of that by Robert Heinlein in any of his books. I do know that Heinlein, Isaac Asmiov and L. Sprague De Camp worked together at the
Philadelphia naval yard during WWII. I also know that Heinlein was a fellow classmate and shipmate of then Captain Laning who was an important player in the development
of the CIC so it would be possible that there was some influence.

Captain Laning credits E.E "Doc" Smith ( a friend and collaborator of Heinlein's) with providing the inspiration for the CIC the U.S. Navy would adopt. It is very possible that Heinlein linked the
two up.

quote:


In a June 11, 1947, letter[77] to Smith from John W. Campbell (the editor of Astounding, where much of the Lensman series was
originally published). In it, Campbell relayed Captain Cal Laning's[78] acknowledgment that he had used Smith's ideas for displaying the battlespace situation (called the "tank"
in the stories) in the design of the United States Navy's ships' Combat Information Centers. "The entire set-up was taken specifically, directly, and consciously from the Directrix.
In your story, you reached the situation the Navy was in—more communication channels than integration techniques to handle it. You proposed such an integrating technique and proved
how advantageous it could be. You, sir, were 100% right. As the Japanese Navy—not the hypothetical Boskonian fleet—learned at an appalling cost."


BTW, for those interested here is a link to U.S. Navy CIC manual dated 1945

The Baden-Würtemberg finally entered service after a delay of 4 years and several modifications.

https://www.ardmediathek.de/ard/player/Y3JpZDovL25kci5kZS83YjcwNTM5Mi0wZjNiLTQ2ODUtOTFhNS0xZGUxMzM4ZjE5MTE/

The Baden-Würtemberg is the first unit of the new F125-Klasse and is intended for long time operations far away from Germany. To achieve that the crew has been reduced to 120 men from 200-250 in precious classes. The ship is supposed to be able to stay on its station for up to two years without having to undergo extensive maintenance.

Finally a BVRAAM race for better range.

I doubt AIM-120D will be replaced though, it’s still superior to most of the BVRs including Chinese PL-12 (12D is still a rumor) so it can be used as a supplement for other targets. I think AIM-260 is more likely a bigger AAM like Phoenix, but usable for F-22 and F-35’s weapon bays. So I shall say it will be smaller than PL-XX that only to be used by AESA-equipped jets like J-16 and J-11D, like this behemoth below:

Yes, sadly database is missing most of the Iranian domesticaly built SAMs wchich entered service in last several years. I'm aware there is not a lot of info about them, but in recent months some things about naming and specification finally become clear. I will try to write DB request when I can post links.

Pretty stupid analysis below since the US drone was never designed to enter contested air space and was shot down in international air space.

China Wins the War: Why I Got Crushed In a Simulated South China Sea Battle

https://nationalinterest.org/blog/buzz/china-wins-war-why-i-got-crushed-simulated-south-china-sea-battle-64026

TNI might not be a good site to analyze military activities IRL, but those authors are surely curious. I am surprised they tried CMANO, although other media have done this years ago.

Speak of China may win the fight, here’s the massive, potentially game-crashing CMANO scenario you could try:

If US offensives doesn’t coordinate carefully to hit Chinese mainland defensive perimeters, the taste of victory will be very brief and weak. Usually it’s not the elite, most advanced frontline combatants to have the biggest glory, because this scenario is a long-lasting battle, and PLA may have massive centerline/secondary assets to attack the exhausted US fleets and jets. This is why we need deeper strategy rather than just blitzing. I learned my mistake from it.

Reports on 2nd Scorpene Submarine for Indian Navy Do Not Reflect Facts – Naval Group

quote:

A report published by Indian daily newspaper Business Insider indicates that the Indian Navy refused to commission INS Khanderi, the second of the Scorpene-class submarine, because of its noise level. According to Naval Group, such reporting does not reflect facts.
...
There has been some delays in completing trials of the second submarine due to setting to work related issues and minor dent to the propeller which occurred during trials. The propeller was replaced and all noise trials have been completed successfully with results well above past specified performances.

Dassault confirms the Future Combat Air System will operate from aircraft carriers

quote:

Despite all the doubts around the final design brief and specifications of the NGF, Dassault confirmed to Naval News that the SCAF will be onboard the aircraft carrier that will replace the Charles de Gaulle circa 2035-2040.

The changes in the aircraft configuration since last October show major improvement in handling and maneuverability at low speed. Despite an increased weight and size, the NGF will probably be able to land at a lower speed than the Rafale, thus diminishing the stress on the airframe of the naval variant.
