Defence Technology Review - June Issue.
Defence Technology Review's June issue is out and as usual it's a must read. The coverage of Offshore Patrol Vessels was eye opening for me and I think you should give it a look see (here).
What is the best OPV in production today? The Chinese monster they just inducted into their Coast Guard? The Blohm+Voss Meko OPV? The poorly conceived LCS/re-classed Frigate?
Personally I'm partial to the Navantia BAM OPV. Its sized correctly, armed sufficiently, has the capability to handle aircraft AND its a proven, affordable design.
What say you?
