RIVER (III) CLASS TANKER As the Royal Westralian Navy's existing River (II) Class replenishment tankers began to age in the mid-2000's, the RWN instigated plans for a replacement. However this was subsequently deferred until the mid-2010's, at which point the NWS shipyard was already occupied with t...

After the RWN decommissioned the Guided Missile Destroyers Perth and Kalgoorlie in the early 1990s, Westralia was without any form of naval area air defence for a considerable period of time. Over a decade after their retirement, in 2005, the Navy instituted a program to restore that lost capability...

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.

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...
