    Exactly techman. The arrival of two of the yards recent builds, combined with the fact the Irish DF already operated with Rotterdam, is merely a suitable location for any sales pitch, with a chance to view the build quality at the same time.

    The ability for the builder to provide is what is being paraded not the actual ships.

    There was a Danish ship in Dublin Port a few weks ago, are they trying to sell to the Navy too? It looked like an under-armed frigate or an overgrown patrol vessel.

    It would do, Arctic weather and all that. They are not new ships. Good idea though. Small crews, sheltered fo'cstle. Makes life a tlittle easier. Can be expanded with frigate type sensor and weapon fit if required though.

    Looked it up on the Danish Navy website. A couple of waves made a right mess of the gun turret on the way to Greenland.

    On a winter exercise off Norway, the German Navy one came back without three whole 76mm turrets.
