    How much are they looking for to get rid of the NZLAS's?

    Surprised they went with the old model and not the newer MR6 variant.
    Does this mean they are likely to offer even more NZLAVs for disposal than the 30 already on offer?

    Just for my knowledge but I understood that Deadweight tonnage (DWT) was the amount of weight a vessel could carry. So empty weight + DWT would equal displacement, is this correct?

    I am confused, on the website and in the MRAV product brochure the weights are given as "displacement". In the individual product sheets it is given as DWT.
