I think you would only arm Hobarts with a LAM of somesort in a permissive environment where AW is not going to be an issue. If I were the TG commander there is no way in hell I would want my AAW destroyers taking anything but ammo for AAW tasks. Let the LAM be launched by frigates. Land attack is a team sport. Hobarts got defence, let the forwards score the points.These additions for the Hobarts are what really make me wonder about the magazine size, as well as the commentary about strike from RAN. I have no knowledge on what will be the mix the RAN choose, but let’s guess with a hypothetical load of about 16 TLAM, 10 SM-6, 14 SM-2 and 8 Quad packed ESSM cells. That’s decent, but IMO a little short for high intensity war fighting on the TLAM and long range SAM side, particularly given the inability to reload at sea. The problem is magnified for the Hunters with only 32 cells.
