Re: Type 31 frigate will be based on Iver Huitfeldt class
This is good news for UK shipbuilding.
Babcock was chosen to built the Type 31, i.e. the design based on the Danish Iver Huitfeldt class:
That means no large OPV or small ASW corvette, but a proper general purpose frigate based on a proven design. Probably a design, which is in regard to air defence and anti-ship armament similar to the much more expensive Type 26.
