Subject: Question re UK new future warship SAM
streaky bacon    5/25/2007 5:09:26 AM
After reading in some posts how the Aster missile may not be as effective as mooted by MBDA and with it being a very costly missile system what is the possiblity of the Uk choosing an alternative SAM to arm its Future Surface Combatant! Would like to see a Naval version of the Meteor missile being developed but not sure if there is the will to produce such a system also feel that the Uk has been taken for a ride by the French and Italians in paying alot of money for PAAMS but not receiving much of the overall work share!

Unlikely that the UK MoD would switch now, although the FSC has a different role to that of  the Type 45, so it would likely have a different system anyway. Perhaps VL Seawolf would still be viable.
