  1. I think those are Aussie ships?
    Or is Nicholas an Aussie and I’m dense?

    Cool looking unit. Needs a big *ss honking gun on it somewhere, though.

  2. Nicholas is from Down Under.

    I like a stabilized 25mm gun in this role, though I’m not sure about ammo options or switching between them on the fly on this particular platform.

    Meant to clarify nationality of the boats in the title. I’ll update it.

  3. The second season of Sea Patrol used one of these ships rather extensively IIRC. Not a bad show I guess, but the same old “survivors/detainees try to take over the ship” bit gets old quick. I seem to recall “Enterprise” suffering from the same problem.
