4 years for 1 Ship ...:big_boss:
Excessive time considering how quickly we worked on F22P back in day are people working 1 day a week ?

  • F22P was like 1 to 1.5 years
  • Azmat Class Missile boats , some were made quickly the first 3 boat at around 1.5 year average
  • OPV were done on nice schedule 1 year per ship , we got 2 done

Every time this angle is talked about I just wonder , with advance manufacturing tools why does this takes longer ?
