I second loving the Irish getting full up jets instead of the PC-9's in the 00's, though I could just imagine the faces when the budget for the Air Corps comes in :shock: :shock: :D

Whatever it is. 40mm and 57mm on the same hull? Please, get real. It's a small cargo ship that can defend itself. I think you could reasonably justify nothing but crew-served weapons. To be fair the Irish Navy was looking at fitting a 76mm along with crew served 20mm mounts. A 76mm shell is about 6...

Like you said, you can't really rush an SSK anywhere, however that brings up the question do you need to? SSKs are undeniably cheaper to build and since they tend to be smaller and have significantly smaller crews they're also cheaper to operate. That means you can have more boats which should help...
