Proposed, never actually done
Apparently Seawolf missiles were considered for the class at one point, but they never got installed. Reading online shows others have heard of something like this. As noted, Edinburgh did get a different weapons fit briefly, but it was not Seawolf.
About 20plus years ago I had hear that the RN had taken one of the Manchester class type 42's and rearmed this ship by putting 3 sea wolf launchers
in to replace the 2 20mm phalanx's by the smoke stack and replacing the Sea Dart Launcher with the 3rd sea wolf launcher. So any one know which of the four Manchester class destroyers this was done with? Was this an experiment? Thanks in advance for any replies.
