Visby - a true Stealth Combatant Visby is a flexible surface combatant, designed for a wide range of roles: Anti-Surface Warfare (ASuW), Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), Mine Counter-Measures (MCM), patrol and much more. Gone are the days when the mere firepower of a ship was sufficient for its own protection. The concept today is action before - or even without - being detected. Genuine HOlistic STealth - GHOST® The Visby class corvette is the first vessel in the world to have fully developed stealth technology, combined with high operational versatility. The outstanding stealth properties fundamentally change the ship's survivability and improve its mission effectiveness. Visby represents "stealth all the way" which Kockums defines as: Genuine HOlistic STealth - GHOST®. Hull design - Attention to every detail The hull is designed on stealth principles with large flat angled surfaces. Every feature that need not necessarily be located outside the hull has been built in or concealed under specially designed hatches. The gas turbine exhausts have been concealed in hidden outlets close to the water surface at the stern of the vessel. The vessel is built of sandwich-construction Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP). The material provides high strength and rigidity, low weight, good shock resistance, low radar signature and low magnetic signature. The material dramatically reduces the structural weight (typically 50% of a conventional steel hull). This results in a higher ...
