    It's not going to be a frigate or anything like it, its just going to be an extra-large patrol vessel with all the stuff OPV's have in other militaries, like a helideck, an air-search radar and the ability to transport troops and equipment. Just going to be a lot longer.

    The OPV's cost about €71 million each with gun and VAT included.

    German 2: Private? I am a general!
