Description: Type 26 Single Statement of User Need is to deliver: An interoperable, survivable, available and adaptable capability that is operable globally within the maritime battle space to contribute to sea control for the Joint Force and contribute to maritime force protection with the flexibility to operate across and within the range and scale of operations. Current planning assumption is that 13 Type 26 GCS will be procured in order to replace the Type 23 Frigates on a 1 for 1 basis from 2023 when the first Type 23 reaches its Out of Service Date (OSD). Joint Assessment Phase mission is to develop and cost an affordable T26 solution and in-service support model that meets the capability requirements, with the evidence to achieve MOD and corporate approvals, enabling the successful transition of the programme to the Design and Manufacture phase.

Schedule text The programme is maintaining current delivery milestones. The known issues which were re-enforced in the July 2014 Project Assessment Review (PAR) precipitated Project Vector and a move to an incremental procurement strategy to bring realism to the programme and adjustment to some of the assumptions may occur over the next year. These will become clear in late Spring/early Summer 2015 and will bound the Manufacturing Phase delivery assumptions.
