    You’re right, that was uncalled for and I apologize unreservedly. And thank you for the missing piece of why ships are corroding to badly. Hopefully the CSC will take measures to mitigate this problem.

    FYI, I’m a retired 1st class engineer (transport Canada), just so you know point of view, and I assume that most people aren’t idiots. And in the BC Ferry service we had a highly motivated, intelligent group.

    About the hull itself. If there is significant corrosion in the hull, it was designed by monkeys, or built and maintained by untrained idiots. Having said that, I agree with you.

    Ferry runs every for 52 years through the high seas every day. Frigates don’tt do that. Structurally they fine The problem isn’t time but spare parts and hopefully not some piss poor fire procedures and training.

    I don’t know what they have or not have not ordered. They have ordered three canons from Leonardo .

    Our frigates are fine. They’re ridden hard but less so than the American or British. They receive regular maintenance, including dry dock. They just look like crap. Ferries ride through horrifying seas for fifty years and don’t have their keels weaken.

    The CCG Harry Dewolf class were never ordered. They’re planned. That’s a huge difference. COVID 19 also slowed down the progress of the AOPS so there is that. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_DeWolf-class_offshore_patrol_vessel#Ships_in_class

    I found this on Lockheed Martin’s Twitter page. It looks like 4x8 vls but with them turned sideways On the wall art

    The cost of any design would be prohibive. It’d be cheaper now to ride around with an empty 8 pack than design it out. Also, like the FFCP, HMG is simply out of time.

    Other than that, that is a really cool ship.

    I’m partial to the data sheet. Why would the gov’t release specific specs only to have that change permanently again in a Lockheed rendering.?

    I was thinking of all the marine coloured CSC.
