Re: None will twenty years service
We would have been better off creating a modern PT-Boat (which we technically already have) fleet...
Most probably won't see fifteen years. Their export potential is nil. They cost to much to run for the Coast Guard to even consider them. Even for free.
A disastrous program. Vague purpose from day one. Mission creep. Equipment promises never fulfilled. What was intended as a fast, relatively inexpensive, coastal corvette with modularity turned into technological and programmatic cesspool. We could have bought small MEKOs but noooooo. Not invented here.
