Topic: STEALTH FAC (Fast Attack Craft)


Which countries produce the best type of FAC's? I heard the Australians have good FAC and the Chinese are building one that looks pretty nice.... Can someone give me pictures of FAC's around the world. Thanks





Looks like it can hold 8 SSM's (Using missile container to illustrate the size)

The swedes have one too,(I think it's the swedes). They have the record for the largest stealth FAC.

speaking of the swedes they're supposed to have one of the most modern navies with a lot of their ships being stealth. i'm not really sure how far the US is going to go with stealth ship development. there has been a few articles about it in Popular Mechanics and Popular Science, but that was the last i've heard of it.

I don't think it's operational yet but will be during next year.

It was actually Sweden who was the first to build a "Stealth" ship. USA said it couldn't been done... Now everybody is trying to build their own.

Its quite interesting to hear that they used Dimonds to cut the composite meterial but they noticed that this couldnt be done in a cost effective way, as they had to change the dimonds to often because of the strong material so they started using water in an extreem presure to cut it up.

Kockums is the one to make the hull or atleast help build the hull for the Littoral ship.
