UK Type 26 selected for Canadian Surface Combatant

Canada’s Combat Ship Team, a consortium of BAE Systems and Lockheed Martin Canada, has been identified by the Canadian government and Irving Shipbuilding as the preferred bidder for the Canadian Surface Combatant design.

The Combat Ship Team submitted BAE System’s Type 26 design, which has also been selected for the Royal Australian Navy’s Hunter-class frigate programme.

The government is set to enter into a series of negotiations with prime contractor Lockheed Martin Canada as part of a “due diligence process” before the final design and construction contract is to be awarded.
