    It now sounds like the Visby+ and Visby++ are going away in favor of the MEKO CSL design.

    This would make a nice fleet, the DCN Swordfish destroyer and Schelde 12717 for frigate, now we need a nice corvette.

    I remember seeing an ad in a magazine of a design from Lurssen for a very similar looking ship. Unfortunately going to their website shows nothing.
    I think you mean this document:

    So they are trying to revamp the old Sea Wraith design huh? Fair enough!

    It's a good thing you are short, that way you don't have to live up to a high IQ!

    ALCC

    Hi,

    The length of the ALCC is flexible and depends on the clients wishes. For the article it is given with 100m with a displacement of 2.800 - 3.500 t.

    It´s a very nice LCS type vessel with an innovative propulsion approach.

    Regards.

    Fantastic attachments MConrads!

    Do they say what the max speed is?

    It does have a nice weapons load, 76mm, at least 3x 27mm Mauser turrets, looks like a MICA/BARAK forward VLS (or similar smaller SAM missile), I like that central multi-purpose VLS launcher, looks like it will be used to launch ASM's and heavier SAMs (like ESSM or ASTER). The RAMS may be a bit of an overkill if they already have the MICA/BARAK and also the 76mm turret (now with the DAVIDE system).

    If they can make one around 80m in length it will give the Visby and GOWIND 120 a run for their money.

    Hi,

    the article gave the max speed with a COPAW drive with 30 knots. Though there was another article were the ship was called " Seabased Asymmetric Warfare Ship (SAWS)": 99,80m / 18m (max beam, delta hull) / 3,90m (max 6m) / 2.500 - 3.000 tons / COPAW or COCOW (all electrical based on the HTS technology) with 32 - 36 knots sprint speed / crew: 43 + 6

    Weapons and equipment: 1 medium gun (first 76mm later 57mm), 4 MLG-27, 8 (self defense) + 16 (strike or tactical) mk-41 vls for ESSM, VL Harpoon, VLA, land attack missile (or similar), 2 MASS, 2 UAVs, 3 USV (1 x 9m, 57 knots, e.g. Chris-Craft Launch 28; and 2 x 6m, e.g. Medine II), 2 UUV (e.g. Seafox etc)

    In an even later article the design (now called multi purpose attack boat of the future) shrank a bit to 72,50m / 13m / 3,55m / 800 - 1.500 tons / 40 knots. It last all of the vls launchers as well, retained all other equipment though.

    Regards

    Thanks for all the updates. So the latest proposal is for a fast (40knots) smaller (72m) corvette? Is that one of the pictures you added?

    I'm surprised they would remove the VLS launchers as even the 72m Visby has a pop-up RBS-15 SSM launcher and vertically launched SAM's.

    Wouldn't expect to see POD drives on surface combatants, and especially high-speed vessels like the proposal above for some time to come. It is a good idea but not practical. So traditional shaftlines and (increasingly) waterjets for some time yet. Or a combination of both, if SAN MEKO A200s are anything to go by.

    Hi,

    "Is that one of the pictures you added?"

    No, they belong to the larger SAWS variant. Can´t post the pics of the smaller boat because I am not at home, sorry. The latest version may be a contender for the (not yet started) German MÜKE (medium surface combatant) project to replace the 10 remaining S143A Gepard class FPBGs.

    "even the 72m Visby has a pop-up RBS-15 SSM launcher and vertically launched SAM's"

    Well, actually the Visby doesn´t have the SAMs yet. Besides the Umkohtos are much smaller than the envisioned ESSM for the ALCC. The shorter design will have to do with RAM (which will be pop-up btw on all the designs to add some stealth while not in use!). The design will have space and room for conventional SSMs however much like the Visby itself.

    "Wouldn't expect to see POD drives on surface combatants"

    Well the article clearly states that it all depends on the success of the HTS technology, which should reach production capabilities early next decade.

    Regards

    Hi MConrads,

    Thanks for all the great pics, can't wait to see the one of the smaller boat when you get a chance.

    Why wouldn't pods be applicable to surface combatants?
