BROADER CONCEPT
SCOPE NOTE
  • A small general-purpose warship built around diesel, steam or gas turbine propulsion and carrying a range of weaponry, typically optimised for anti-submarine operations. Vessels of this type are now distinguished from Frigates by not carrying a helicopter, Warships of this type have traditionally tended to operate as part of larger formations rather than independently.
