An off the shelf C3 option??

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Trawling the internet I dsicovered these Danish ships:

    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.

    Time to buy Danish!
  2. NIH says 'no'
  3. Basically looks like the Peacock class 76mm etc only difference being propulsion method Peacock were twin tourb v-16 diesals
  4. Except that these Danish little ships have a useful working area at the stern for boats, containers for MCM work etc.

    I would prefer to see the Rivers adapted as they have a lovely large range.
