  1. Well, as was the case with the previous versions of the article this is simply a list that gives no insight into why waterjets are installed on these particular vessels and not others. Also still no indication of how inefficient waterjets are at lower speeds, which will be where most of these vessels will spend most of their time.

      • Still the primemovers for the Valour Class and the National Security Cutters is very nearly the same horsepower and the Valour does not seem to have any significant advantage.
