HMCS Halifax was the first of an eventual twelve Canadian-designed and Canadian-built guided missile helicopter-carrying frigates. They combine traditional anti-submarine capabilities with systems to deal with surface and air threats as well. The Halifax class are the work-horses of the Canadian Navy task group concept. All ships of the class are named after major Canadian cities, with at least one from each province (Ontario and Quebec, the most populous provinces, have two each).

Flight Deck

The ship has a helicopter deck with a single landing spot. The deck is fitted with a RAST (Recovery, Assist, Securing and Traversing) system supplied by Indal Technologies of Ontario, allowing the launch and recovery of helicopters in up to Sea State 6. The hangar can accommodate a 15t helicopter such as the Sikorsky CH-124A Sea King. It is anticipated that the new maritime helicopter, the CH-148 Cyclone (also known as the Sikorsky H-92 Superhawk), which is slated to replace the Sea King, will be deployed onboard the frigates with only minimal alterations to the ships' structure required. Sea state refers to the height, period, and character of waves on the surface of a large body of water. ...

Propulsion

The Halifax class is powered by a CODOG (combined diesel or gas) system with two GE LM2500 gas turbines and one SEMT-Pielstick 20PA6 V280 diesel engine. CAE provided the Integrated Machinery Control System (IMCS). The Halifax class is the first to employ this degree of computer control for the machinery plant, and variants of the CAE system are also installed in other ship classes such as the US Navy's Arleigh Burke Principle of a CODOG arrangement Combined diesel or gas (CODOG) is a type of propulsion system for ships that need a maximum speed that is considerable faster than their cruise speed, particularly warships like modern frigates or corvettes. ...

Plans are underway to replace the Sea Sparrow missiles with the Evolved Sea Sparrow, upgrade the towed sonar arrays and fit newer propellers and anechoic tiles to reduce noise emission. HMCS Montréal has already been upgraded in the latter regard. Of note in the structural design of these ships is the distinctive funnel housing, designed to diffuse the vessels' heat signature.
