Cannot see NZ acquiring them because they are nothing more than a glorified OPV. By the time you pay for the requisite upgrades it would be just as cheap or cheaper to go direct to OMT, acquire a license for the F370 design and build to your specs in a yard of your choice. Maybe South Korea etc.I could easily see a country like NZ buying 2-3 type 31's, they won't be old ships when they are sold, they have huge upgrade potential. About the time they are ready to be sold the ANZAC's will be ready to leave the fleet.
