Stealth on ships is generally a tricky thing to actually make work, fortunately it looks like they won't be as terrible as the DD(X)es. The problem is the spray a ship kicks up and the acute angle between her and the sea are both highly reflective, and even a tumblehome is going to reflect sometimes when it pitches. Better to be somewhat stealthy and have good seakeeping than be a terrible sailing ship that is slightly better than that at stealth.

Its looking a lot prettier than the Type 45 Destroys that have just entered service.

 

I just hope the contracts are going to be coming to Glasgow. I saw a number of the 45's, a few misc frigates that went to overseas nations and part of Queen Elizabeth being built there :)

mini type 45's.

 

I like the look of em but hope they get the equipment in the spec and are not built "fitted-for-but-not-with" like alot of our ships are these days... :Smile_sceptic:

A drop in the ocean compared to other ships (excuse the pun)

look at the proposed spec for these ships and you can uderstand the costs involved, also small build runs = higher individual unit costs alas. Look at the Type 45's £1.5Billion per ship after the order was halved due to all the R & D costs being divvied up between six hulls instead of 12.
