New Sea Ceptor missiles to be developed for Royal Navy

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  2. Gash name...
    • Like Like x 1
  3. Another money pit? can we sell it? will any one else want it?
  4. Apparently named after a line of Casio watches, well done that man...

    try and pass it off as a phonological misunderstanding with the clerk/problems with spelling at main building and rename it Sea Sceptre? much better..
  5. Typical slack journalism.
    Nowhere does it explain how we`ll manage to give BAe half a billion quid for nothing.
  6. Probably because we're already contractually obliged to fill their pockets with cash even though the project is only in the crayons phase.

    500m? It will be treble that and late and they bloody well know it.
  7. .

    There is a duplicate thread on "The Fleet" page.

    and I posted a comment ;

    "Good news (?) - but bloody stupid name, the average matelot will find numerous ways to mis-spell it.

    I somehow doubt the "500 mile radius" - it would make the Type 45's missiles look a bit anaemic, but 5 miles would be too small for present threats. I find the idea that the Army and RAF will use it quite amusing as well. The BIG question will be what radar/control system will be used or developed for it.

    Where does this leave the Aster 15 ( name correct ?) ?

    Need more info (and a simpler name - all "PR" geeks should be shot)."
