The paper highlights design intentions and actual achievements. Hidden bonuses as well as set backs are looked at from technical, operational and budgetarial angles.

As the RN1N is actually in the process of designing and building a so called M-frigate of 3000+ tonnes, a true frigate of the nineties, views of both past and future are presented to the gas turbine world.

Marinised gas turbines have matured considerably in the recent past, but of even greater importance is the fact that naval personnel have matured towards handling gas turbines.

The next decade will therefore see gas turbines in ships, not as some strange high performance “black boxes”, but as the relatively simple, high performance hardware side of the man-machine-symbiosis.

The unique and highly valued qualities of “marinised” aircraft engines will continue to be recognised. But since ships must have a high degree of sustainability during long months of arduous duty, ships carry engineers and self maintenance will play an ever increasing role.
