Holland-class offshore patrol vesselsEdit

The Holland class Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) will fulfill patrol and intervention tasks against lightly armed opponents, such as pirates and smugglers.

There has been discussion about the armament of the Holland class, officially the ship is being fitted with armament as shown in the fact files, however the class carries an exceptionally advanced radar system for just patrol tasks. This indicates that maybe in the future, if needed, the ship can be equipped with heavier weapon systems such as missiles.

Royal Netherlands Navy ship prefixEdit

In Dutch, ships are given the prefix "Harer Majesteits" ("her majesty's", abbreviated as "Hr.Ms.") or "Zijner Majesteits" ("his majesty's", abbreviated "Zr.Ms."). In English, the Dutch prefix is translated as "HNLMS" for "Her/His Netherland Majesty's Ship".

Some authors translate Hr./Zr.Ms. as "HNMS" but that abbreviation is ambiguous: the "N" might stand for "Netherlands" or "Norway". The most common way to avoid this ambiguity is to use "HNLMS" and "HNoMS" respectively.
