I'd be very angry if I purchased a car that unreliable, let alone a defence asset. Is this something that happens often? I have to plead ignorance, I'm more a foreign policy guy and less a defence spec person (specialist? Dare I say nerd, heh?). Part of the reason I I'm on this site is to make good that ignorance. Anyhoo, went off on a bit of a sidetrack there, I'm somewhat interested in the MOOTW potential of these ships. It seems to be substantial.
