    Well, they are constabulary vessels. IMO there is no way Ireland can or will want to afford any kind of meaningful defence on its own. I would like us to act inside the EU frame work and focus on...

    The first problem here is a decent radar, without it CIWS and missiles are useless. I can't see the NS buying either any time soon. It would be nice if the EPV had good SIGINT and COMINT capability....

    Yes, one of the things that riles me is how long it takes for the AA to get places. Partly I think that is because it only has one base, but also, at what readiness is that chopper kept? IMO it...

    Thanks. That is what I was thinking too. I was just a bit thrown by Dev's post. So from a mooring PoV the 200*30m ship would not be an issue and we can agree to disagree on the docking thing?

    That is the dimensions of the dock - I am trying to tease out what would fit into the basin. Same beam but longer?

    You don't need side by side for basic training, the PC-9M seems to function well for ab initio training. I agree on forgetting the combat role though. A cheaper option would be the Grob G120TP
