Back again with a design for a Patrol Frigate that is entering service with a number of navies within the Recherche AU, and is replacing the Cascade Class FFH in Recherche service, the Leda Class Patrol Frigate:

Planned to enter service with Australia and New Zealand as a replacement for the Anzac Class, with the UK as the Type 31 Frigate, as well as the navies of Maddelena and Papua New Guinea:

The Yarra Class:

The Waikato Class:

The Fearless Class:

The Vivaldi Class:

The Sepik Class:

I've also drawn up a few versions as proposals offered to various other nations, including a few as a polite nod to just some of the AU's here on Shipbucket that help to inspire me (though I've kinda included Leut_East's AUSDEF-N AU through the Australian vessel above which isn't particularly accurate to his AU):

Holy poop. They are beautiful Rowdy. Very sound and stately looking designs. I'm sure my AU would love to get their hands on something like this.

Would have to liquidate half the Forces for one of them, but it'd be worth it. :!:

Awesome! Especially cool to see the "national flavors"... and even cooler to see you included a North Point variant! :) :O

Hmm. These are very, very attractive.

Small complaint - the CEAFAR mast is necessarily six-sided rather than eight-sided (or more precisely, the angles of the forward and aft arrays are +-60deg rather than +-45deg). I'd fiddle with the mast a bit to indicate it's not structurally identical to the various SPY-1/TRS-4D/etc. variants.

Hah, these are awesome. It's great when AUs combine.

A minor note with the RGN one, SAMOS would probably be placed over the hangar like you've done with Goalkeeper due to deck-penetration.

I really like the idea of multiple proposals for other nations - great idea. As always mate, another great design by a great artist.

Hi Rowdy!!

Shit, that's hot. And good looking. Did I mention handsome? You even used the right helicopter! Superb work on all of them!

I'll certainly save that one. I have only the most basic ideas about Thiaria's contemporary fleet (I'm currently doing WW2 era escorts), but it will be large compared to any real life European outfit, so there might just be space for multiple frigate classes and some foreign purchases. Maybe I play around with it a little.

Greetings
GD
