It's not that I know better. Your own posting above gives you more credibility about the Navy then I will ever have. His point is that he is concerned about the AOPS ability to defend itself. I share those concerns, especially with future asymmetric attacks.Sure any lightly armed ship will be a "sitting duck" in a threat area unless they're well protected. I deployed to Africa twice in the Kingston Class and I can assure you we weren't in danger. There is always what ifs and yes HDW with its 25mm will be doing Caribs and Op Projections when fully operational. Based on my experience the RCN will not be sending these ships to the Gulf or anywhere like that. Of course I know you and Parkinson know better and if they don't get attacked you guys will probably say we got lucky...lets agree to disagree.
