the horizon project was cancelled. i don't know why. the fremm is the successor (with the anti-air version for the french only). i don't know what the italians have for AA umbrella though, since they only have 2 horizons.
ASTER doesn't work. No sense pouring money down a rathole. The French are quite good at ASW systems. Hence their reorientation.
The Italians will buy American AAW SAMs and systems and use their own good ASW in their own builds.
