Royal Navy Awards BAE Systems Contract To Design New Warship

The Royal Navy awarded BAE Systems a contract to aid in the design and development of the new Type 26 frigate. The four year contract is worth almost $250 million. The new vessel will replace the aging Type 22 and 23 frigates.

The contract will keep jobs in Scotland for several years. The actual contract to build the new warships will be let in a few years with a goal of the first delivery in 2020.

The Royal Navy is planning major new construction programs for aircraft carriers as well as strategic missile submarines. The budget pressure the U.K. is under is extreme as the costs of fighting in Afghanistan along with social spending may restrict the money available to the RN and RAF in the next few years. Thousands of jobs building ships hang in the balance as these contracts are awarded and move forward. Scotland especially is dependent on the aircraft carriers to go forward as a way to keep their economy going.

The next years may be key to the future of the Royal Navy.
