"USA approved": Canada intends to equip new frigates with American BIUS Aegis

The Royal Canadian Navy intends to equip the new frigates with the American naval multifunctional combat information management system Aegis. The US has already approved a preliminary deal.


The US Department of State has approved the sale of the Aegis BIUS along with related equipment to Canada. The approval of the State Department means that Ottawa will definitely receive what was requested, since all other procedures within the framework of the approval are purely a formality. We are talking about the approval of the deal by the US Congress.

So far, Canada has requested equipment for four next-generation frigates, which will begin construction in 2023, according to data provided by Navy Recognition. According to the request, the Canadian Navy will receive four AN / SPY-7 radars, four coordinated intercept systems, three vertical missile launchers Mk.41 and a friend-or-foe identification system. Also included is software for Aegis.

All this together is estimated at about 1,7 billion dollars, American, of course, and not Canadian.

In addition to the supply of equipment, the Aegis system needs to be adapted to the new frigates, so Ottawa requested additional services for this adaptation. How much this "addition" will cost has not yet been reported.

All in all, Canada intends to build and enter into the composition fleet 15 frigates of the new generation "Type-26", the construction of the series will begin in 2023. So the Royal Canadian Navy will repeatedly request the sale of the Aegis BIUS from the United States.

    There is nowhere to put the money?
    Canada is not such a rich country ...
    The queen will help you with money!

      In fact, there is enough money - in terms of nominal GDP, Canada (USD 1590 million) surpasses Russia (USD 1425 million). In terms of GDP per capita, it is on the 18th place in the world

        I can make sure that there is a lot of money by looking out the window.
        But who is going to attack Canada?

          Firstly, the United States will try to drag them into a new military bloc against China, and secondly, due to global warming, the development of the Arctic will gain momentum, especially since they have their own northern sea route. It will have to be protected, because the same China is trying to claim its rights to the Arctic, despite the fact that geographically - it is as far as the Arctic as it is to Australia. Historically, Canada is a peaceful country that spends a small percentage of its GDP on defense, now this situation will gradually change.

              Corrected a scanty one on a small one, but nevertheless, it is very small, in comparison with the United States or, moreover, Russia or Israel. 1,4% of GDP for defense is the level of demilitarized Germany and Japan

            I see no contradictions ... The Aegis BIUS system is not bad and everyone is moving towards this, why not? The alternative С400-500-600 here for Canada is an unambiguous choice in my opinion ... Well, no one canceled the American Commercial Interest ...

              BIUS Aegis is not bad

              Not bad. But the VPU Mk-41 on the frigate is only 24.
              KMK turns out to be a little expensive.
              If only they are going to manage something else.
              Or expansion reserves for the TLU have been laid, which is not yet noticeable. hi

          Precisely, that no one thought to attack! The army and navy can stand idle for 100 ... But if you need them, you have to have them ready!

    Yeah, more than $ 400 million per set ...
    If in reality all 15 frigates are put into operation, then the Canadian fleet will become one of the strongest.

        Where did you get such a dislike for irons, did you have problems with debt repayment?
        Judging by the opinions of the Americans, after the northern storms, Zamwalt will give odds to many ships in terms of seaworthiness.
        It looks like you have not met either warm or soft yet.

          Judging by the reviews of the Americans,

          Learn materiel. Broken shaft bearings, leaking, being dragged to dock after 1 mile, etc.
          Py. Sy. And to believe mattresses is not to respect yourself, and this applies not only to the iron, but also to the penguin, hyper rockets, "there are docks, but we will not show", etc.

            Indeed, where and where, and in Russia they have long forgotten about tugs, but here everything is half a turn and for centuries.

    All these figures are from the evil one. In the sense that the cost varies greatly. Somewhere I came across an interesting comparative analysis of how much spending on armaments actually costs in Russia and in the United States. For example, if we take the weapons produced in our country, which are approximately comparable in functionality and characteristics with the United States, then in the United States, the rise in price for a similar quantity is several times.

      If you look in history, then in my opinion it is called "the toilet case". This is the title under which the headlines were published in the US media. The bottom line is that the cost of installing a toilet bowl in a Boeing 767 for civilian lines is $ 50, and for the Pentagon it was $ 700 in my opinion, and so in many ways the prices are simply overstated tens of times

    This is not exactly what I meant. But indicative enough!)))

    Well, they say that our frigates are expensive! Here they will turn out gold, one radar will be more expensive than the rest of the ship.

    let them litter, they have China nearby, but we can through the Atlantic, but there is nothing to say about the quiet or the northern
