    Please find out the details, if you can, as to how these are superior to the ones existing.

    What is the operational advantage and the tactics for employment.

    Thanks.

    Looking around the NECC website, I did not see a patrol boat of that length. The existing boats were smaller with partially inflatable hulls.

    This boat must have been one of the inspirations for that new Mark VI
