Work on the Type 45 Destroyers funded by the Ministry of Defence includes In-Service Support and Fleet Time Engineering (FTE). Under the In-Service Support Contract, which covers the entire class of vessels, costs are not attributable to individual ships. It is, therefore, not possible to identify separately the total cost of the work carried out on individual ships since entering service with the Royal Navy. The total cost to the Department of In-Service Support and FTE on the six ships in the class since they entered service is £370 million.
BAE Systems has not funded any work on the Type 45 Destroyers.
