There's always a chance for a nice surprise (especially with PN), but based on what I heard from the CNS' speech, I'd go with the most obvious route unless shown otherwise... That route is 6 additional OPVs from Damen. I can easily be wrong, but I'm just saying based on what I heard.How come J-class factors in PN plans?
If PN envisions a fleet of 20 major warships, then it completes after integration of 6 HTVs.
Or should we assume that J-class are the 6 HTVs? (which is not the case). I tried to get more know how about J-class but only credible thing I learnt was 'It will be technologically most advance vessel of this region in its time period'.
Nothing more nothing less.
Initially I was also under the impression that PN is opting for some heavier vessel from Daman. However my this assumption was refuted by @Ark_Angel.
If you look at HTVs from 'destroyer perspective' (assuming funds have been sourced from a friendly nation), what pictures and options come into your mind?
