Leander is available in four sizes (99m, 102m, 117m, 120m).
Leander has been carefully designed to maximise customer freedom in selecting weapons, preferred combat management systems, power and propulsion arrangements, platform equipment’s and habitability standards.
Leander is a well thought-out design offering operators a great deal of flexibility in ‘how’ military tasks are performed through its sophisticated capability choices and layout.
A great deal of thought has been given as to how Leander could adapt with time. We have provided an open system architecture and set of through-life growth margins sufficient to deal with further technology insertion, capability upgrades and role changes.
Leander has been designed to meet all the latest Royal Navy standards. The proven nature of the platform, systems and equipment’s assures "performance" on delivery. Leander also draws on decades of UK warship design experience to ensure she will perform robustly in combat. Our design to cost approach has not compromised her combat credentials.Find Out More
The BAE Systems Combat System exists, is combat proven and benefits from ongoing Royal Navy and private venture investment. This combat system maturity will allow Leander to conduct military operation shortly after delivery. Our approach is to ensure the Leander "works when taken out of its box".Find Out More
Leander has been created in 3D and the CAD model has been maintained to ensure our engineering data remains mature. Cammell Laird and BAE Systems has shared their shipbuilding expertise to develop engineering outputs that are acceptable to a commercial shipyard. We have also worked jointly to achieve a "build to print" approach, thereby assuring export customers on the quality of build information available.Find Out More
The maturity and care taken in our Leander design ensures the warship has a robust safety case and can achieve all our national security accreditations. The robust nature of UK standards in these areas should assure export customers as to the strength of the underlying Leander design.Find Out More
