It may be a tad top-heavy yes, but I lined it up alongside a number of other modern frigates and it never seemed it have much difference in draught, at most maybe 3ft less than some of the larger frigates I compared it with. With the Fridtjof Nansen, which physically I feel it matches with the close...

During the 1980s, the Royal Westralian Navy began plans to replace their Esperance-class frigates, which despite extensive modernisations were recognised as beginning to rapidly age and approach obsolescence (having been built upon lengthened Leander hulls). Various proposals were made and designs e...

Comprising the other half of RWN Patrol Force, the 'Shark' class of patrol boats are named for several species of shark found along the Westralian coast. Designed with an innovative beak-bow to reduce pitching motion and maintain higher speeds in rougher seas, the class has proven invaluable both fo...

Named after four of the five major Aboriginal groupings in Westralia, the Noongar class of OPVs will become the backbone of the Royal Westralian Navy's patrol force; performing longer-range, offshore patrolling duties off the Westralian coast and into the Indian Ocean, and occasionally the Southern ...

I've been around here a few months now, so I thought it about time I'd give my own AU a crack. It's still early days and rough around the edges, but that can only improve with time and effort. More details and the first few ships should come soon The Dominion of Westralia https://i.imgur.com/6YdvsSm...

I did not know that, but quite possibly so considering that yes, it is built upon the Italian FREMM

Okidokie, last one of the shortlisted contenders. I may decide to do some of the others that didn't make it this far through the program, but this is the third of the the main three, Navantia's Hobart-class based 'F-5000' proposal. https://i.imgur.com/cH1BiAx.png Quite possibly the most likely to wi...

A little rough around the edges so to speak, but I've finally cobbled together Fincantieri's FREMM based proposal for SEA 5000 (built upon probably the best FREMM drawing available, excellently drawn by Little Bird). Some parts are placeholders and the CEAFAR mast is definitely wrong overall, but it...

Yeah, seeing the positioning of it over the flex deck is giving me second thoughts. More importantly on this topic, a small update on SEA 5000 I found in the latest issue of Defence Tech Review indicates that harpoon cannisters (I think, very low res image, but it'd make sense) are going to be place...

I'm not sure, there hasn't been much in the way of details so its all conjecture, but I've put in 8 Mk41 self-defence cells there. I feel if they were installed there then the ESSMs would be fitted entirely in that position (if it were Mk41 you could quad-pack for 32), opening up room for longer len...
