yep.. Visby class corvette is indeed interesting.
the reason for Swedes outrunning Americans in this stealth ship race
might be another classic case of "everything is big in America".

Visby Corvette (Sweden)
lenght: 73 meters
Displacement: 600 tons

DD(X) Destroyer (US)
lenght: 208 meters
Displacement: 14,000 tons

we do a lot of co-operation with the Swedes..
one fine sample of this is the AMOS Advanced MOrtar System.
