Certainly looks like the Swift from the video. The vessel was certainly never designed to withstand an SSM being built to the HSV code as a high speed transport.

Feel quite sorry for the poor sods on board

Hulk of HSV Swift. I guess the latest analysis is that it was hit by a C-802 anti-ship missile

Swift 1- 75.jpg

Swift 2 - 75.jpg

Swift 3 - 75.jpg

Just wanted to share a short doco on US navy Autonomous swarm boats

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NN3A7z9diT4

Are we heading towards picket ships that will be Autonomous and can take damage while manned ships will be the offensive part of the fleet ?

tasking development

eg swarming USV's mobbing around for ASW,
mobbing and patrol in harbour management,
acting as mobile bearers for an advancing array

endless possibilities....

its another layer added to the onion rings

Not really, there's no sentiment in commercial operations and tug owners aren't about to support the low productivity and high wages which would occur here.
Low productivity because there is no current yard tooled up to produce these tugs and local wages and labour relations are very different to VN.

Not so long ago when shipbuilding subsidies were around we did build many types of commercial vessels including tugs

Producing warships is a very different prospect.

Taiwanese government offically signed the contract for their indigenous submarine programme. Not mentioned in the link but they also trying to use HSLA-80 instead of HY-80 for their submarine, warship and even infrastructures such as bridges to achieve economic of scale for the steel mill. Just wonder, how's HSLA-80 compares with HY-80?
