Trawling the internet I dsicovered these Danish ships: http://www.naval-technology.com/projects/fly/ Compare them with the new River Class ships which have a 30mm gun...and thats it. For a bit more we could have had some very capable pocket warships. We should also look at modulising harpoon and Sea Sparrow on the Rivers, thus giving them a bit of a punch! There is talk of the future C3 option, of a smallmultirole ship for OPV, minhunting and patrolling etc. Either buy these or modify the Rivers instead. Either would cost a fraction of developing a new class of ship. I have to say that I like the Danish ships, especially these ones and the Absoloms which would perfectly cater for the C2 design. http://www.naval-technology.com/projects/absalon/ Time to buy Danish!
