Nice. You should enter it in the NATO ASW thread.
As for parts, the Mk 42 gun, and the torpedo tubes are in the USN parts thread (same with the WM series egg radar), while the updated SH-3s haven't been done in RAN livery yet (they are floating around here someplace).
One other thing that confuses me is that it looks live you've got the Ikara launcher arm on a platform that is cantilevered out over the side of the ship, which would be weird.
Oh the Sonar dome - just copy one off of a Spruance - It's very nearly the same thing that was used on the USN DE/FFs.

Awesome! Handsome, yet powerful! You managed to draw the hull in such a manner to allow it to exude strength, an almost brute force yet have grace and speed associated with it. I very much like the colors too. Too bad it's only a "what if".

Actually a few designs here and there had hull cut-outs for Ikara, mostly Type 1x frigates and IIRC even an early Perth proposal. Couldn't tell you why though, on the face of it it does seem kinda stupid.
