This. There's a lot of assumptions in here that 60R replacement will/should use the same sensors/type of sensors. Are their different ways to do ASW that could be employed by the 60R replacement? ASW isn't my jam so I cant speak to anything specific.I would also say to broaden your idea of conops.
Which is a more capable ASW platform? A P-8 or an 60R?
If you had a Poseidon-type patrol capability that could take off from a DDG, would that not be worthwhile?
