River B2 has CMS, Clyde does not. (This is big difference)ArmChairCivvy wrote:Can someone remind me of how the B2s are better than this B1.5 singleton?
- I remember the more warship-like construction std, and enlarged/more numerous mag's for weapons (including one for use on the helo deck)... not much more (there must be?)

I do like the NEMO system, it could be a great candidate for a modular weapon fit to fast landing craft

"weighing under 3 tonnes and can be rapidly deployed for high speed manoeuvring in addition to full stop (dipping mode). The unique ST2400 VDS is a compact package with Omni-directional coverage and performance that can overcome challenging acoustic environments while not limiting the vessels manoeuvrability.
Kongsberg Maritime Subsea Naval, Director of Sales, Thomas Hostvedt Dahle said: “The Finnish Navy has been our key partner from the early development of the first ST240 VDS in the 90’s to the latest version of the ST2400 VDS that we have today. It has been field tested in challenging conditions in the very shallow parts of the Baltics where reverberation issues and layers are dominant. We look forward to continue to improve and develop our system to operate in probably the world’s toughest ASW environment"
