#1 Armed with 18 torpedoes and eight surface-to-air missiles,

SAMs, eh? That should add an interesting twist to the sub-chasing game.

#2 Diesel Electric?

None of the performance specifications about range and patrol loiter time make any sense.

There is more to this boat that the Russians want us to know.

#3 Up scale coastal defense boat. A good one. Likely designed for export. Look at the picture in shipyard, note the size of the sail as related to hull.

#4 Mehhh, AFAIK the most important vessel in any RN overseas task force is the FLEET/OCEAN SALVAGE TUG - CHECK BACK WID ME AFTER IT CHANGES.

Nice to look at though.
