If the news is accurate, then our navy will have two ASM systems, the Harpoon and the Teseo (when the Italian ships arrive). The US usually puts a lot of restrictions on the use of equipment they give through aid or through FMS. It might be possible that we are restricted from installing ASMs on the WHECs so as not to anger China, America's No. 1 "economic ally".

This article even says the the Ex-Hamiltons will also get the AN/SQS 26 Sonar and Mark 46 torpedoes, too good to be 'TRUE' ... :armycool:

yep, its the USCGC Mellon that was equipped with the anti-submarine warfare suite, which includes the AN/SQS-26 sonar and Mark 46 torpedoes.

it was just mentioned that the two ships will be fitted with more sophisticated radars capable of detecting and tracking down incoming surface threats and anti-missile and torpedo decoying systems. no specifics yet

If its true its getting sophisticated radar then it should be newer than the AN/SPS-40.

The source is an unnamed official which is hardly a guarantee that this will turn out true, not until Alcaraz arrives here with the Harpoons already on deck.

The article says the Harpoon refit will be done in the US. Alcaraz is still in the US so its but practical that the installation be done while the ship is still there.

It will then
Anyone who comes to a counter-insurgency thinking it`s about killing terrorists is missing the boat. It`s really about winning the people. You can kill all the terrorists but then you`ve pissed people off and created 100 more.
