High speed, extended endurance and aggressive capability combine to provide robust, versatile and economic maritime effect. The most advancedsurface warship in the world Here is just a selection of the superlatives applicable to the Type 45: Performance To meet the challenging speed and endurance requirements, the Type 45 Destroyer accommodates two Rolls Royce WR21 Gas Turbine-driven alternators, two Wartsila Diesel Generators, two Alstom Electric Propulsion Motors and their associated control and distribution systems.The ship will accelerate faster and turn inside current ships, with a top speed of well over 30 knots. Capability Type 45 has been engineered to maximise survivability within any given threat. Clean angular lines contribute to her stealth profile and deck fitments are concealed behind doors.The Type 45’s radar can track multiple incoming threats simultaneously, prioritise them, assign countermeasures and deploy them to their targets. It can even track a target the size of a cricket ball approaching at three times the speed of sound. When required, the Type 45 can fire multiple missiles at a time and guide each one precisely to a different target. Her hypersonic missiles can reach Mach 4-5 (five times the speed of sound) in just two seconds. Versatility Type 45 provides the future air defence capability for the Royal Navy, offering local air defence for maritime task group and area air defence at long range.The ships contains about 800 compartments – some of which are purposely unallocated to simplify the introduction of equipment developed over her projected 30-year service life. The flight deck and aviation facilities are designed to operate LYNX or MERLIN helicopters. The flight deck area is four times that of a Type 42 destroyer – big enough to land a CHINOOK. Ingenuity The Type 45 are the first warships to feature Integrated Electric Propulsion, replacing gearboxes with direct shaft drive from electric motors.
