The Pentagon revealed some details of the weapons of the new frigate FFG (X)

The latest frigate FFG (X), which is being built in the interests of the US Navy, will receive an advanced Aegis air defense / missile defense system and up to 16 over-the-horizon anti-ship missiles. This was announced in the US Department of Defense.

The Pentagon released an official statement Friday that revealed some of the details of the latest FFG (X) frigate being built at the Fincantieri Marinette Marine shipyard in Wisconsin for the benefit of the U.S. Navy.

Frigate FFG (X) (...) will be equipped with the Aegis air defense / missile defense system of the Baseline 10 modification, as well as up to 16 anti-ship missiles with a horizontal launch range. The ship’s electronic weapons will include a new radar for detecting air targets and a sonar station with a variable depth of immersion

- said in a statement.

As previously reported, on April 30 this year, the US Navy signed a contract for the construction of the head frigate of the FFG (X) project with the Italian company Fincantieri. The contract value is $ 800 million, the construction is carried out by the American division of the company. The agreement also provides for the option to build nine more ships of this class. At the same time, Donald Trump, who visited the Fincantieri Marinette Marine shipyard on June 25, said the series could be extended to 20 ships.

Each frigate will have 32 Mk.41 vertical launchers. FFG (X) will carry the MH-60 Seahawk marine helicopter and the MQ-8C Fire Scout unmanned aerial vehicle

- Trump said, speaking to the shipyard workers.

The new frigate will be 30 times more powerful than the warships of the previous generation, and its displacement will be 7,5 thousand tons. I personally changed the appearance of the (new-approx.) Ship

- added the American leader.

The program for the construction of a new generation of frigates FFG (X) was launched by the U.S. Navy back in 2017. New frigates should replace the not-so-successful "littoral" combat ships of the LCS.

        This is exactly what the Chinese. Our MRC for happiness. What are the economic opportunities. Such and the fleet hi But there is a small "BUT". How to exclude the total influence of the surface fleet on the defense-constituent ability of the country? And in general it is possible? I think so, maybe yes

            It is precisely because of stagnation and loss of personnel that the nightmare you described is possible. In general, I commented on shipbuilding.
            There were times when a lone ship flying the flag of the USSR Navy passed through an NATO warrant; they gave way, respected and feared.

                I am very glad that you are with us. We will not go deep, since you are a shipbuilder, you yourself saw everything. Regarding the rise_da. It used to be that the shipyards rotted without ships, now they are not enough, but they are being fixed little by little. And on atomic missiles, the Yankees are far from us.

          There was no stagnation and loss of personnel.

          It was not there. Not on such a scale as ours, but quite sufficient to cede leadership to the Chinese. I don’t know about shipbuilders, but how I myself didn’t see it in IT and geophysics on the Internet.

          IT what a small development group looked like in the 80s
          PM (Manager) - Amer
          TL (Leader) - Amer
          SA (architect)
          S (coder) - Amer, Jew (ours or from Israel)
          T (tester) - Jew (ours or from Israel)

          like now
          PM (Manager) - Amer
          TL (leader) - Russian or Amer or our Jew
          SA (architect) -Russian
          C (encoder) - Russian, Chinese (in a remote place directly from the Russian Federation or China)
          T (tester) - Indian (in a remote place directly from India)

          I hope it is clear that this is a complete loss of the development process in the medium term?
          With geophysics, it’s even sadder, there Amer is only a supervisor and usually on a remote site. And station operators and drivers and spit workers are all local. Engineers and actually our geophysicists. Well, it’s on the ground ... I don’t know on water.

          And this is not a trifle; it is so in Microsoft and Halibarton.

        All shipyards there are private. No ship - no money, and also sanctions for breaking the contract. Therefore, nothing is shifted "to the right" there.

      As I understand it, they take an example from our frigates. But make them bigger.
      However, our 22350M, when they begin to build it, will be very good.

        For a long time there were only 8 Harpoons on the Tiks and Berks.
        And then there were none.
        On ESSM Lockups in large numbers. There are completely new VPU.
        Maybe they’ve adapted some anti-ship missiles. Most likely based on the Tomahawk.

      Since China became the main adversary at sea, replacing it with Russia, in which only frigates and RTOs can build a more or less normal series of 8-10 pennants, and then we see how many years our construction sites have been stretched, and
      The PRC is building a large number of 056 type corvettes (and this is not taking into account the types 052 and 055 destroyers), which can conduct a limited ocean war, only this year they handed over 8 pieces, and 56 units for the PLA were delivered in general, so the US needs ships, besides them the main destroyers that can sink these corvettes, while being able to fight with the Chinese destroyers. And since the shipyards for destroyers are already loaded, and the construction of the destroyers themselves is more expensive than frigates, it is immediately clear that frigates for them are currently the best option for increasing the number of naval personnel. Especially in the version in which they are going to build them.

      About the series of frigates Oliver X Perry heard?
      The Americans in the Soviet Union had this - aircraft carriers - it’s understandable why, cruisers and destroyers — to cover aircraft carriers and form separate KMGs for battle with the Soviet Navy, and frigates - a convoy service for vehicles transporting US forces to the mainland. So they had a lot of frigates with specific tasks, and then, after the Cold War, they relaxed.

There is a single-beam CM1 (in the current conditions, especially if there are Chinese YJ-12/18 or all sorts of Onyx / Mosquitoes / Granites against Perry - these are 1-2 missiles, no longer have time) - here is the air defense / missile defense package on ESSM / CM2 + / CM3 in MK41 and a good channel.
