Stealth Warship

The difference in detection range between an ordinary vessel and Visby creates a considerable zone where the Visby can see but not be seen.

Just the thing for those boating runs from Jamaica to the Florida Keys:The barely visible Visby

The Visby Class corvette is the first vessel in the world to have fully developed stealth technology, combined with high operational versatility. The outstanding stealth properties fundamentally change the ship's survivability and improve its mission effectiveness.

Visby is a flexible surface combatant, designed for a wide range of roles: anti-surface warfare (ASuW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW), mine countermeasures (MCM), patrol and much more.

Much more might be signaled if the Columbian Navy orders up one or two dozen.

Actually, I think we can start to expect to see stealth boats hit the "market" if you will, in less than 2 decades, and be used for the purpose you allude to.

Swedish warships? Ha ha ha ha ha!

In a real picture (as opposed to an artist's rendering) you can see the Visby just fine....

"Any A. Mouse": Yes, it is true. Kockums has been building ships for a long period. The problem is that Swedish companies are not allowed to sell military equipment to countries involved in a military conflict...
