1/700 Scratch Built Hull Type 26 Global Combat Ship Frigate For Sale
This is a 1/700 Scratch built hull Global Combat Ship (GCS) also known as the Type 26 Global Combat Ship, or simply Type 26 frigate of the United KIngdom. This is my interpretation of the frigate using sources from the internet.The Global Combat Ship (GCS) also known as the Type 26 Global Combat Ship, or simply Type 26 frigate, is a ship design and construction programme currently under way by the Ministry of Defence of the United Kingdom. It will replace the thirteen Type 23 frigates of the Royal Navy and export orders are being sought. The programme has been in development since 1998, initially under the designation "Future Surface Combatant (FSC)". In March 2010 BAE Systems Surface Ships was awarded a four year contract to develop the Type 26 Global Combat Ship. The design has passed Main Gate 1 and detailed design is under way with a final decision to be made in early 2015.Under current plans, first steel will be cut by the end of 2015 and that the Type 26 will "enter service as soon as possible after 2020. Royal Navy ships will be equipped with the Artisan Type 997 3D search radar and Sea Ceptor (CAMM) air-defence missiles launched via 48 VLS canisters. An additional 16-cell or 24-cell "Main Strike Length" VLS (either the American Mk 41 or European SYLVER A70) is positioned forward of the bridge capable of firing missiles such as Tomahawk land-attack cruise missiles, anti-ship missiles and quad packed Sea Ceptor missiles. Like the Type 23 frigate it will replace, Type 26 Global Combat Ship will have an acoustically quiet hull for anti-submarine warfare and will be armed with Sting Ray acoustic homing torpedos. Each Type 26 will be fitted with a Thales Underwater Systems Type 2050 bow sonar, while eight vessels will be equipped with an additional powerful towed array sonar (e.g. Sonar 2087) recycled from the Type 23s. The Type 26 will also be fitted with guns of various calibres. Instead of the RN's traditional 4.5" gun it is expected to have a NATO-standard 5" main gun, either the Otobreda 127/64 or BAE Mark 45. Smaller guns include two Phalanx CIWS, two 30mm DS30M Mark 2 Automated Small Calibre Guns and a number of miniguns and general-purpose machine guns. Finished model is on top of the unfinished kit on the first picture. I am saleing the hull as is. Contact me for shipping rates Thanks a lot for looking
