Description: There is a need to replace the 13 Type 23 surface combatant capability before the safe operating standard for legacy ships is withdrawn and the platforms become obsolete. Following the Strategic Defence and Security Review it was confirmed that this enduring requirement will be delivered by the Type 26 Global Combat Ship (T26 GCS). T26 GCS is planned to be a globally deployable and sustainable warship that will form the backbone of the Royal Navy’s future fleet. It will be a task group enabled Anti Submarine Warfare warship, with an acoustically quiet hull and will combine the capabilities necessary to protect maritime task groups, the strategic deterrent and land forces, with the flexibility to conduct a wide range of other tasks. The current planning assumption is for a class of up to 13 ships delivered in two variants; anti submarine warfare and general purpose vessels.
DCA (RAG): Unknown
DCA text: Main Gate 1 (May 12), endorsed by the MOD Investment Approvals Committee, identified a baseline design from which more detailed design work is to be matured along with cost and schedule certainty during the remainder of the Assessment Phase (AP) and for the Support Solution to enter its AP. This work will underpin the programme’s Main Gate 2, which is expected towards the middle of this decade, and therefore allowing the production phase to begin within the same timescales.
