Superb to see the first of the City Class (Type 26) frigates, the future HMS Glasgow, shaping up on the Clyde in Scotland - a vessel I write about in the expanded (paperback) edition of 'HMS London' Pen and Sword Books
The Glasgow will soon be in the water and there is to be a T26 HMS London in the 2030s, hence my look at  that vessel and the Type 26 programme. My thanks to BAE Systems Maritime - Naval Ships for helping with material for the new chapter.

Royal Navy to buy the Naval Strike Missile

While meeting with his Norwegian counterpart on board HMS Queen Elizabeth in Oslo today, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has finally confirmed the RN will purchase the Kongsberg Naval Strike Missile (NSM) to fulfil the interim anti-ship missile requirement.


The Interim Surface-to-Surface Guided Weapon (I-SSGW) programme was originally initiated in March 2019 – a plan to purchase a small stock of weapons to replace the RN’s obsolete Harpoon Block IC when it went goes out of service. The £200M budget was expected to provide enough weapons to equip a few of the Type 23 frigates until the Future Cruise and Anti-Ship Weapon (FCASW) becomes available, supposedly in 2028 although most believe this timeframe is unrealistic. In late 2021, the then First Sea Lord, said the RN had abandoned I-SSGW as a “sticking paster” approach in favour of waiting and investing the money in FCASW.

The subsequent war in Ukraine has laid the RN’s lack of offensive firepower increasingly bare and undoubtedly led to further reconsideration and the decision will be broadly welcomed. The MoD says the weapon will be fitted to a total of 11 Type 23 frigates and Type 45 destroyers and will integrated in the UK by Babcock and BAE Systems with Norwegian support. It will be fitted to three vessels “at pace”, ready for operations on board the first RN warship in a little over 12 months.

The RN is known to have admired the NSM for some time so it is no surprise it has been selected, especially as Norway has an increasingly close defence relationship with the UK. Developed by Kongsberg and now sold in partnership with Raytheon, NSM is exceptionally stealthy and avoids the use of radar for guidance, making it especially difficult to detect and defeat. Its main drawback is the small warhead with about half the hitting power of the Harpoon it might replace which could be a problem if trying to counter larger warships. Deployed in the littoral environment against combatants up to frigate size it would be very formidable. It has been in service since 2012 and successfully exported to several navies, notably bought by the USN for its Littoral Combat Ships and Constellation-class frigates.


The NSM has a range of around 185km and a 120kg warhead, it is guided by inertial navigation, GPS and an infrared sensor.

HMS Glasgow now afloat. Will spend the next few years being fitted out at Scotston. Credit to George Allison for these fab images

HMS Glasgow successfully takes float 🚢
Today is a momentous and proud occasion for the Type 26 programme and our colleagues, with HMS Glasgow, the First of Class, arriving at our shipyard in Scotstoun having successfully entered the water last night. Her time in Scotstoun will be spent finishing her outfit before test and commissioning takes place.
