French Navy Demonstrates its 1st Cooperative Engagement with Frigate & Destroyer

quote:

In a first, the French Navy (Marine Nationale) demonstrated a cooperative engagement between two of its surface vessels.

Horizon-class air defense destroyer Forbin remotely engaged a target (with an ASTER 30 surface to air missile) using a radar track shared via data-link by the FREMM frigate Languedoc.

The event, a milestone for the French Navy (a first in Europe, for a European navy), took place on September 18 2019 during the “Gabian” training exercise, a recurring exercise involving several vessels based in Toulon, on France’s Southern coast.

Biggest surprise in the PLA Parade:

DF-17 Hypersonic Glide Vehicle




GJ-11 Attack Drone (formerly "Sharp Sword") - it even got stealth nozzles now! Updated with a better shot on its rear.





WZ-8 Hypersonic Recon Drone





HSU-001 Unmanned Underwater Vehicle



DF-100 Strategic Supersonic Cruise Missile



And of course; the DF-41 ICBM

Finally we see the YJ-12A anti ship missiles mounted on the refitted PLAN Sovremenny DDG.
The size difference compared to the Moskit is huge! I bet they would have no problems fitting them with double the number of YJ-12s.

Clearly not very real right!:

Has some specs listed, will this be added to DB for current CMANO?


Yes, most likely, and the DB3K database will also continue to be used in the future.

Thanks for the info.

The other "classified" function of PHASER should be probably anti-riot/"freedom fighter" swarms.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Active_Denial_System
Quote on the Popular Mechanics article :
quote:

There may be other benefits other than anti-drone screens, but no one is talking about them publicly. “PHASER also has other applications that can be utilized for defensive purposes,” Sullivan admits. “I can't get into other applications outside of counter UAS because of classification reasons. We're not clear to discuss that at the moment.”
