It's a heavily armed small warship. Several weaknesses though no air defenses worth mentioning (6 SAMS) at sea these would be enough to hold off helos but nothing else. It is extremely vulnerable to sub attack lacking any combat ability against hostile subs. It is however a drug runners worst nightmare. It is fast enough to run down just about anything, but a racing speed boat. It is heavily armed with machine guns and fast firing auto cannons. The class will be decommissioned though soon the hulls are showing extreme wear.
