Remaking the original design i put one big funnel instead of two small, the accomodation hull moved more fwd and all the equipment moved accordingly! Also i increased the width of the hull for the top weight!
All these changes, reminds me a small version of a FREMM frigate...( i didn't plan it :mrgreen: )

Now if a corvette is useless at the Aegean sea...I don't think so...
A corvette is cheaper (cost of building, operation & maintenance), smaller so can easylly hide behind the noumerus small rocky islands of Aegen sea (years now tactic of greek FACs), powerfull platform of weapons (in this case the ship has equipment of a 90s-2005 frigate, a corvette is the ideal ship for large patrols in the eastern Meditteranean sea and probation of the big west , south and east Greek Εxclusive Economic Zone! Ofcourse a compination of frigates ,corvettes & FACs will be the best, with the corvettes & FACs to be the bigger part of the fleet and the frigates to be a smaller part...

I like your corvette and I agree with you, that such a vessel is suitable in the Aegaian See. But you have to do something with your CoA (Coats of Arms)! I'll guess that it's from a picture in jpg-format and cock-eyed too. In part sheets discussion is a thread "Coats of Arms for naval vessels" where you can find a matrix for the Hellenic Navy ;) viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1095

Work in progress:
DD County Class PNS Babur (1982)(PAK)
FF Type 21 Class D182 PNS Babur (2000)(PAK)
All relevant Coat of Arms

I ask of you to prove me wrong. Not say I am wrong, but prove it, because then I will have learned something new.
