............... I am kidding
Ha. That's not quite what I've heard.

I would imagine a CEA radar, aegis, F-100 type frigate would be attractive to some, but I would have thought the US probably would not be that interested.Too much overlap. They also talk about displacement 4,500t?

Maybe a reconfigured Nansen sized would be more doable, half the size of a Burke, you could still fit a decent radar, missiles, ASW, a gun. Under half the crew of a Burke. You can distribute your fires are bit more. A cut down Nansen would be getting close to that much. But the Nansen would be a pretty compromised design, let alone a cut down one. Maybe better off starting with something fresh or something setout to be a frigate. F110 maybe?

Upped gun National security cutter? Seems to be simular size, smaller crew?

Retired Admiral Perry, now at GD Electric Boat discusses progress with the Virginia Class builds, the Columbia Class design, including the common missile module with the RN and UUVs.
In particular he talks about the labour hiring requirements for these huge programmes and it gives an indication of what will be required at a micro level for the future Australian SEA 1000 project.
A very interesting interview.

I would have loved to be a fly on the wall,at his pre operational briefing. It's unusual for a junior Officer to be given other than very limited scope in this type of operation and if he was totally incompetent he shouldn't have been given the task.

Navy ships are increasingly crammed with power-hungry mission systems and will become even more so once future lasers and railguns become standard kit. The Navy is pushing the Energy Magazine concept to realize the benefits of an electric fleet.


https://defensesystems.com/articles/...tricships.aspx

Navy’s Energy Magazine supports higher power demands on ships

The Navy is working to build more efficient electric ships by eliminating the need for most intermediary power systems and improving electric pulsed combat systems with the next generation Energy Magazine and Energy Magazine Mk II.

According to Steve Markle, Director of the Electric Ships Office, at the Navy League’s Sea Air and Space Exhibition, the Energy Magazine concept currently in development is being designed to solve two challenges facing the Navy: a demand for more dynamic power and a demand for higher power...

The final aspect of the updated electric ship is the actual power generator. The Advanced Power Generation Module (APGM) is in the early stages of study and prototype development, with study contracts currently being prepared, according to Markle. The system will be designed to use DC voltages and support randomly determined electric payloads as part of the Energy Magazine concept. Simulated testing is currently being performed by Sandia National Laboratories, and the next generation power generator is scheduled to enter the testing phase in FY23.
