T26 Frigates

RAM28

Midshipman
Currently doing some revision on the surface fleet and does anyone know if the harpoon missile is being replaced or re-used on the new t26s as I know the sea ceptor missile is replacing the sea wolf currently installed on the t23s but these are only the shorter ranged missiles?
Also out of interest what do you guys think about only 8 T26s replacing our current batch of 12 T23s?

Harpoon replacement is being looked at. P8 will be fitted for Harpoon as the US use it. Both Navies has a Harpoon replacement programme underway studying what next...

8 x T26 but 5 x T31; a lot of the tasks a T23 does don't need to be done by a T23. There is some sense in the proposed way ahead.
