Type 26 DEW 01

DEW System for Canada’s CSC Frigates?

David Dunlop, 25 October 2020.

Apparently the British have decided to use a Direct Energy Weapon (DEW) laser system on the Type 26 frigate starting in 2023 (see below). Will Canada do the same for the CSC Frigate? We definitely need something to replace the CIWS and/or SEA Ram on both sides midships. Looks kind of "bare" there as it stands now.
