Interested in the options for a new ship for the Royal Navy post Brexit. The basic parameters, are that it should be capable of fulfilling fisheries protection - needed to protect UK fishing, from foreign trawlers were used to be able to fish in UK waters. It should also be capable of intercepting any vessels carrying illegal immigrant/refugees, as well as dealing with smugglers - e.g. drugs etc.
The Freemantle Class Patrol Boat could be used as a base line (as per Sea Patrol), update with UAV launch & retrieve capability.
I look forward, to ideas, and comments.
