Soon after the cruise missile offensive, another significant portion of Blue's navy was "sunk" by an armada of small Red boats, which carried out both conventional and suicide attacks that capitalized on Blue's inability to detect them as well as expected. "

    ouch !
    Well, part of the problem was that a large part of Red's missile boats were being played by small speedboats that would have sunk under the weight of one missile, let alone the four to eight they "carried" in the exercise. Hence why blue couldn't detect them.

    It makes you never complain about tight parking spots in front of supermarkets ever again.

    Must be for land-based sea defense, as shown in those nice photos. The only vessel I can think of that could conceivably carry NSMs would be Gawron, and they go for RBS-15 if I am not mistaken.

    Not a bad choice. NSM batteries in Poland should well and truly deny the Baltic sea entrance.

    This is Gawron, by the way, it's the Polish word for a rook:



    We were supposed to get 8 of those corvettes, but there's no money (costs got tripled due to ever-changing designs, compared to original German project), neither of them got finished since 2001 when the project was launched and the shipyard which was making them went bankrupt lately. Our minister of finances is on the record saying "we don't need a navy", and our defence minister is going to review the project in the coming couple weeks.





    Oh well. Let's get more NSMs.

    Arctic Patrol ship

    all 8 should be finished by 2021

    Joint Support and Supply Ship

    2 being built, 3 one possible but the Navy is also looking at buying one French Mistral Class instead with the funds

    Province Class/ Canadian Surface Combatants Ships
    15 in total first ships would be ready by 2021 two types about the same length, "Destroyer Version" would have more command and control devices and more specific weapons systems. "Frigate Version" would have a more mix of weapons for multitasking

    So that is the result of the Canadian project to make their patrol boats based on the Norwegian Svalbard class.
    They even look similar.

    Neat underwater "mine" that actually launches a Mark 46 torpedo when an enemy submarine is detected.

    I remember reading a very bad Jeffery Archer novel once about a rogue British Sub laying CAPTORs outside Murmansk blowing up two enemy subs and nearly starting WW3. Clever bit of tech that with many applications.

    I had no idea it had actually sunk so far, I caught the story before I went to work this morning and it was still just listing.
