1º Não, o MK48 é completamente incompativel com armas da familia ASTER2º HMMMM? Qual é mesmo a pergunta? "Napercebi"!
Newzealand navyNavy warships to get new enginesThe navy's two Anzac frigates are about to get new main engines as part of their mid-life upgrade.The first of the warships, HMNZS Te Kaha, was launched in Melbourne in 1995 and commissioned into the navy two years later.Its sister ship HMNZS Te Mana, was launched in 1997 and commissioned in Tauranga in 1999.Both ships were fitted with two gas turbines similar to those fitted to Boeing 747 aircraft, and two diesel engines, giving them a top speed of close to 30 knots.Four new engines for the two ships were due to arrive in Auckland at the Devonport Naval Base this week.The new engines would cost $7 million for each ship when they were fitted, said Captain Fred Keating, assistant chief of navy (capability).He said the new engines would give better performance and fuel economy at up to 18 or 19 knots until the gas turbines kicked in for high-speed runs.He said in the 10 years since the 3600-tonne ships were commissioned they had "grown" by up to two tonnes a year as more capability was added."That is extra weight we have to move."Some parts from the old engines would be canibalised for the new engines. The old engine carcasses had a high residual value and would be sold, he said. Te Kaha would be fitted with new engines in a 16-week refit in the middle of next year and Te Mana would follow.To get the new engines into the engine rooms the Seasparrow missiles behind the funnel would be removed.He said with only two frigates the navy had to balance availability with defence demands.
Thales to modernize Netherlands' M-Frigates radar suite The two new sensors will be matched with the tried-and-true SMART-S surveillance radar and the STIR weapon control radar that are on board of the M-frigates.
Fica com o LW 08 para aviso aéreo 2D de longo alcance, com o SMART-S para aviso combinado e mais o SEASTAR...? Ou seja este ultimo não vai substituir nenhum dos já existentes mas complementar, ficando com 3 radares...?
The M-Class frigates were introduced in the nineties and were intended for air defence and submarine warfare in the Atlantic. However, these ships are deployed mainly in littoral waters to counter frontier-running, pollution, drugs trafficking and piracy. The SEASTAR and GATEKEEPER sensors provide the vessels with the capability to detect the small targets encountered in such situations. The two new sensors will be matched with the tried-and-true SMART-S surveillance radar and the STIR weapon control radar that are on board of the M-frigates.
