 Key Publishing Ltd Aviation Forums - Better CIWS: Palma/Kashtan? AK630? GoalKeeper? or Phalanx?
As for chinese type-730 = french satmos/satan gun system which was supposed to inferior to goalkeeper and french found naval sadral to be better/cheaper alternative to it so hence the program was axed.
Anyway, just looking at using guns, I think they will be pretty equal in performance even if their tracking and aiming systems differ.
Whenever you see a report about a Chinese system that is like something you know and love, always take that assertion with a pinch of salt.

 Sea Power: Change of heart on UAE's OCPB program
Six vessels are required, with local construction by Abu Dhabi Shipbuilders, and several international yards have tendered for the work.
Initial indications suggested that what was required was a vessel possibly armed with light surface-to-surface missiles like BAe's Sea Skua and/or Matra's Sadral short-range surface-toair missile.
Now, however, it appears that the UAE has changed its equipment requirements to a MK-41 verticallaunch system, presumably with Sea Sparrow or SM-2 Standard surfaceto-air missiles, as well as MM-40 Exocet surface-to-surface missiles.

 The Hindu : More a diplomatic event
The French navy's anti-submarine frigate, Dupleix, which can carry two helicopters, is a powerful military tool, capable of acting alone using her awesome weapons and sensor mix.
She is one of the few warships to have optical anti-air self defence system and Sadral anti-missile systems.
But what makes them surgical is the ship's ability to identify a friend or foe.

 New Zealand awards contract for $500 Million Dollar Project "Protector". - Defence Talk - Defence Forum   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
I would actually prefer another MRV than a frigate, i think New Zealand should just merge the navy, army and air force and create the NZ marines...
Another option is to upgrade the OPV to more of a corvette level of capability to take over some of the frigates roles, eg, 57 or 76mm cannon, RAM or Sadral in front of ther bridge, phalanx, 2 triple tubes, 2 twin boxed harpoons, plus associated sensors and light weapons.
As to the merging of the 3 arms of the defence department, that is a NZF policy.

 Australia  RE:The Bare Essentials for the ADF - the LCS? - Drop StrategyPage.com
Problem being that the RAN looks like going for Mistrale (SADRAL 6 round launchers) because of the need to mount harpoon forward of the bridge on the ANZACs.
Tis has lead to the requirement for CIMD to be devolved to two SADRAL launchers mounted on the aft corners of the hangar to provide some semblance of 360 degree coverage.
My preference would be to install the second Mk-41 VLS at the same time as doing the ESSM upgrade so as to provide cells for Harpoon and possibly TLAM.

 Taiwan -- Modernization
However, the price quoted was extraordinarily high, and recent convictions in the kick-back scandal concerning the La Fayette deal may have in fact put at end to the Aster 15.
Additional reporting also indicates that the French Sadral missile is also a possibility, however, the kick-back scandal may have an effect on this plan as well.
Other SAM options could possibly involve the Raytheon SM-2MR and the SM-1MR missile (already in use with the seven Cheng Kung class).

 Islam, Dialogue and Civil Society
It is possible that humans commit errors in the discovery of these laws, and later come to recognize their errors, but what changes here is the understanding of the laws, not the laws themselves.
We may accept the principle of change and instability in the essence of the world, just as Sadral Mote'allehin among the great Muslim philosophers-believes in 'dynamic essences', or just as Marxists see the world as being propelled by internal contradictions, and thus immersed in a constant state of transformation.
Thus, the principle of change is permanent for everything.
