    So... stuck with it, then. 5" is a big too much for a frigate, I think?

    Edit: anywhere we can see the specs (size, weapons, etc) for this ship?

    Looks like a proper frigate, tbh. But the 57mm does look small... would have thought a 76mm would be much better, preferably the Super Rapido version.
