This opens up a number of questions:

Will the RN ever fit any more Sylver VLS or will this result in a move towards Mk 41 and its successors?

Will the space provided for additional VLS on the Type 45s ever be used, if so will they be Mk 41?

Could this even result in a long term (when the Type 45s are retired) move away from Aster 30 to a US missile?
