    Speaking of that...here is one of the Swedish Navies state-of-the-art corvettes. The Visby-class..they built operate 5 of them. As designed, they were supposed to be armed with a very capable anti-ship missile system and an anti-submarine missile system..both of which were cancelled. So instead they only sport that little 57mm deck gun. The Swedes practically disbanded their entire military structure beginning more than a decade ago..something they now very badly regret and are trying to reverse.

    I tried to post that it carried a bunch of Bocephus Missles, but everytime I typed Bocephus, it autocorrected to Bocephus Missles..
    No one cares.

    not everyone you face will be equipped with a Missile System
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.
