HNOMS STORM and STEIL.
A pair of these Norwegian vessels are currently playing games down in the S.W.
Strange looking beasts - a gert big barge affair with nowt but a gun at the front.



Big, flat and extremely fast so I've been informed.




When the Norwegians build a patrol boat, they build a patrol boat.

Can't remember which country but one from Scandinavia somewhere, designed a class of their boats so that it was largely composed of right-angled triangles all over which apparently made it less visible to radar.

Yes seriously, pusser has used various shades of grey for generations in an effort to avoid visual detection. Unless these vessels are being used in fjords extremely close to land what is the point of ground type camo?
There you go slim, being used in fjords extremely close to land, which part of the world are they from?:p

You've just answered your own question, they're used primarily as coastal vessels. Take a look again at the photos and it's obvious why they are camo'd up.

Thanks Sumo & Monty, just loked at a site depicting them, the camo really works well against the snow covered terrain in the background.
However they are classy and super fast.
