Why Type-23 Frigates were Weaponized? #shorts

    Dauer: 00:57

    This is a story of the Duke class frigate of the Royal Navy also known as Type 23. The Falklands war changed the design of the frigate from focusing on anti submarine warfare to more of well rounded warship. #shorts

So they designed a combat ship with barely any anti aircraft capability in an age where planes can deliver anti ship missiles hundreds of miles away....It may be a frigate but that little thing is still a target in times of war or conflict.

*CIWS (close-in weapon system) - Not CWIS ...While it is pronounced "Sea-whiz", it isn't spelled that way - but its a completely reductive statement anyway, one could just as easily say; _Russian Navy: Sunburn ASM_ _Royal Navy (and _*_many_*_ others): CIWS_ Out of interest, have you any first hand experience of Phalanx type systems? Know how long their ammo lasts, how the system is reloaded or how long that takes? ...and that's not even mentioning the fact that with the Systems drawbacks, if you're going to "logistically" support a Dual Turret, it is far more defensively effective and economical to station them individually (although perhaps the Russian System fires from one """barrel""" and then from the other while the first cools and/or is being rearmed, or perhaps one is kept redundant in the event of malfunction with the other?) just because they "can" operate both at once, doesn't mean they _would_ in an active engagement.. would be very 'expensive' for not very much more benefit.. one wall of lead tends to be enough

@Skengman Add on :- When Argentinian troops invaded the Falklands, they found 1. The people that stay in Falklands chose to be British and part of the British Empire 2. The citizens had lost all Hispanic (and Argentinian) cultures and affiliations w any Latin American cultures. Languages was all in English. Roads and streets were even given British names. imagine this Argentinian soldier “Habla Espanol?" Falkland Elder “Anyone wants biscuits with tea?”.

The Falklands where a British colony and people did live there so I don’t know what your talking about sustainable to live, there were under 30 Royal Marines on that island when it was invaded by Argentinian forces, and Port Stanley was the capital, further more it was an act of aggression and was not an invasion by Britain, Argentina was just hoping Britain wouldn’t care enough to re claim it, Facts *matter

Original air defence was meant to be provided by a tender/ solid support ship with sea wolf missiles with these class of ships in a pack of 4 hunting subs. They changed it so instead of a solid support/ tender providing air support, each ship had their own missiles instead of having to rely on ciws.

@A Quill and Scroll Illustrious was completed quickly to relieve Invicible in September 1982 whilst the RAF Mount Pleasant Runway was being built, similarly the RAF's Vulcan tanker conversions didn't arrive until after the war. Even in World War 2 the Luftwaffe never got its heavy bomber and probably the most powerful industrial war effort in history - The US in World War 2 couldn't complete a battleship during the war even though they were laid down the day after Pearl Harbour - kind of makes my point that nearly always in terms of actual fleet warships you pretty much go to war with what you have not what you'd planned to have or can refit to improve in hostilites (HMS Hood for example)

@Tom Riley Not really phalanx and millenium gun is a bolt on system, even though the t23s are old, the recent refit will spare them enough power for said systems and said systems can easily be installed. Also do note even if there are escalations, we still have time, seeing as how shipyards could bring forward hms illustrious’ completion due to falklands war. An enemy will still have to manoeuvre and travel in which time many preparations can be made. Do not forgot MI6 performs the role of early warning, any enemy choosing to raise escalations will alert MI6, so unlikely for us to be caught with our trousers down for a large scale movement... only small movements such as salisbury were unavoidable.
