BAE Systems has been awarded a contract by the DE&S (Defense Equipment & Support) of the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence worth £3.7 billion to manufacture the first three Type 26 GCS (Global Combat Ship) anti-submarine warfare frigates. Steel will be cut on the first ship in Glasgow in the coming weeks.

The Type 26 GCS will replace the anti submarine warfare variant Duke-class Type 23 frigates within the Royal Navy.
