US Navy opted for 57 mm Bofors guns instead of 76 mm. In the future all new will have 57 mm.

I don't think 57mm suites our geography, especially if these ships sail past islands or have to give some fire support at short notice.. Plus 76mm vulcano is infinitely superior compared to the BAE Systems ORKA

İf it happens, with MMSC they will get SM 2 at least this is what they have asked for. Anyway in a very near future even the most delusional Greek politican will realize that an arms race with Turkey is not sustainable.

''According to Doureios Ippos, the cost for 4 Multi Mission Surface Combatant (MMSC), a design by Lockheed Martin, would be less than 2 billion euros, including all weapon systems and missiles, plus an initial support package. The MMSC configuration would be similar to the vessels selected by Saudi Arabia, except that the weapons package would include SM-2 medium range surface to air missiles required by Greece (the Saudi ships have 8x VLS cells for ESSM short range surface to air missiles).''

Seems like Greece is under pressure seeing TDK modernization.
