Given the British lack of AAW escorts for the carrier would it make sense for Britain to build 3-4 AAW type 26 frigates. Along with the 8 ASW type 26.

The French have done this with the FREMM class, though the frigates are less capable than the AAW frigates the French build. They are still effective AAW ships.

I don't like the low grade Type 31 and 32 frigates. They seem designed for an export market. So for me we really need 9-10 AAW escorts and 13-16 ASW escort to maintain a carrier battle group, as well as 3 more Astute class boats. For 10 SSN's.
