  1. These ships weigh over 6000 tons, It basically has the same gun as our armoured personnel carriers which weigh 20 tons, seems odd and disappointing to me. Otherwise a nice and roomy ship.

  2. A note of interest for those who follow the deployments of the Canadian Navy. While in San Juan Puerto Rico this week I observed two Canadian Coastal Patrol Vessels in the harbour. HMCS Glace Bay (#701) in the forefront. Unfortunately too distant for a quality photograph. Still a fine looking ship although the lack of any main armament is painfully obvious. Is it possible that the automatic cannon installed on the AOPS would be a good fit for Kingston Class vessel?

    1. The ships in San Juan were an untendered Mulroney gave to SNC Lavalin. Useless ships. The two are enroute to Africa, crewed by ethnic quotas, on the annual Trudeau virtue signalling tour.
