Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft CarriersThe Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers are the largest warships ever constructed in the UK and will be the centrepiece of the UK’s military capability for generations to come.
Global Combat ShipThe Global Combat Ship (GCS) is a highly capable, affordable and adaptable multirole warship designed to support anti-submarine warfare, air defence and general purpose variants
90 metre Offshore Patrol Vessel
The Offshore Patrol Vessel is a highly versatile ship, designed to perform economic exclusion zone management roles, including the provision of maritime security to coastal areas and effective disaster relief.
Type 45 DestroyersModern ships must be able to operate in different levels of conflict; from peacekeeping operations where the gun is used for firing warning shots, law enforcement missions against pirates, smugglers and terrorists, and finally, full war conditions where the gun is a vital part of the ship’s self-defence against hostile ships, attack aircraft, anti-ship missiles and shore targets. In the littoral scenario the gun must have the capability to engage threats that are impossible to engage with conventional gun systems.
Survivability in such an environment requires an extremely flexible weapon system. The low weight and compact Bofors 40 Mk4 gun system with its high rate of fire and capability to switch between optimized ammunition types, including the intelligent 40 mm 3P (Pre-Fragmented, Programmable, Proximity-Fused) all-target ammunition, provides high survivability and tactical freedom at all levels of conflict.
Astute Class SubmarinesThe Astute class will equip the UK Royal Navy with its largest and most powerful fleet of attack submarines. As exciting, complex and challenging as any engineering project in the world today, we’re harnessing the unique skills of our workforce and drawing on years of experience to deliver a step change in capability
