Hi Lance,

I know the information comes from Wikipedia, but here is what I used in terms of classification for these vessels.

"Their main missions are counter narcotics, coastal surveillance, sovereignty patrol, route survey, and training. They were designed with a minesweeping role in mind and are consequently classified as mechanical minesweepers (MM); however, this role has diminished as a result of the evolving nature of mine warfare. The possibility of acquiring the gear necessary to undertake a more appropriate mine-hunting role continues to be examined."

Yes they were originally designed as Minehunters, but they have taken on a "multi-task" role instead. Ultimately, I am happy for the group to determine how strictly we want to classify these ships and will generate a modification to the CR as required.

Thanks for the feedback.

Gareth
