In recent years, Offshore Patrol Vessel design has evolved at break-neck speed. In 1985, patrol vessels were focused almost exclusively on policing functions with limited anti-surface armaments. The 1990-2000 time frame saw a sudden expansion in mission profile, with more demands for firepower and lengthened sea time. In addition, newer multi-mission vessels required the ability to deploy 'ribs' and 'helos', and there was less emphasis on overall top speed.
