Danish Navy Demands Additional Funding

Danish Navy Demands Additional Funding 24 November, 2016

Royal Danish Navy plans to acquire Standard Missile-2 (SM-2) Block IIIA medium-range missiles for its Iver Huitfeldt-class frigates. According to the Chief of the Naval Staff of Royal Danish Navy’s statement, the funding of this project is a top priority and they also look to make a decision on a planned frigate ballistic missile defence BMD upgrade path in 2018. 
Three Iver Huitfeldt-class frigates have been commissioned in Royal Danish Navy in the last two years. Armed with four eight-cell Mk 41 strike length vertical launching systems (VLSs) capable of firing Standard Missile variants, the vessels feature a Thales Anti Air Warfare System (AAWS), incorporating the active phased array multifunction radar (APAR) I/J-band multifunction radar, the Signaal Multibeam Acquisition Radar for Targeting (SMART)-L D-band volume search radar, and an associated fire-control cluster, with Terma's C-Flex combat management system (CMS).
