Dreadnaughts and ironclads
Belmont Club discusses new naval technology and calls for doctrine to make that technology effective. It is odd how the silhouette of the forthcoming DD(X) echoes some of the first iron clads. Who could have imagined those sloping surfaces would be resurrected to deflect light instead of shot? The Visby class corvette is a stealthy Swedish alternative while HMS Daring, first of the Royal Navy's Type 45 class destroyers will come into service in 2007.
