The Italian design has s nice bow flair. So many of these look like LEGO ships.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

Keep in mind, these are $15M conceptual design contracts.

I welded for BIW on the Oliver Perry class in the 70s and early 80s. This company has a very long history of building US Navy ships.

They have a good reputation compared to Avondale which built Coast Guard cutters that twisted in heavy seas. Those are now being decommissioned and sold to foreign countries.
