I've never heard of an IR guided artillery shell. How is that supposed to work?

Necro but...

Type 26 has been selected as Australia's next frigate. 9 Frigates named the 'Hunter Class' presumably after John Hunter and the Hunter Valley region. Quite a fitting name given its ASW role. The first 3 ships are to be named HMAS Flinders, HMAS Hunter and HMAS Tasman.
(This thread hasn't been updated in a while but the British type 26 will be called the 'City Class' with the first 3 being call HMS Glasgow, HMS Cardiff and HMS Belfast.)

It beat out Navantia's F5000 design and Fincantieri with their FREMM-A design. Main design differences between the Australian version and the Brit version of the Type 26 include the CEAFAR radar instead of the type 997 artisan, more mk41 vls cells instead of the sea cepter cells and an aegis combat system among other changes.


It looks likely that Canada is going to select the Type 26 as well, and there's always a chance (still unlikely though) New Zealand will expand the Australian build like they did with the ANZACs. Inb4 'Global Combat Ship' becomes 'Commonwealth Combat Ship'.
