the milltary thin you posted are you shure it is a boat it looks like a sub
Take a look here for more on this vessel;
I agree... it could easily pass for a surfaced u-boat.
I'm going to have to read through that globalsecurity page later this evening.
I'm not a warship guy but...while you're reading that take a look at this;
Bath Iron Works will be building two of these ships.
Maybe if the owners of Sigma get tired of her, they can paint her grey and offer her as an ultra comfy version of these warships!
No offence to the owners of Sigma if your reading this...just having some fun.
Does anyone have an idea what kind of propulsion package Sigma (SF99) has? Probably CODAG?
I am truly not sure, but I think I red somewhere a few months ago, it has two MTU 16V 1163 TB93 diesels, each 5.920 kW and one LM2500 gas turbine with 25.060 kw. It means 36.900 kW (50.184 mHP) all together..
Best regards to all members
The entire stern seems to be for tenders. 3 hatches each on port and starboard, the aft one HUGE, and the stern seems to open too. I wonder whats in there... probably the usual, submarines, chopters, missle launchers.
Please don't cause speculation...we will know in time.
Perhaps she IS a submarine herself after all...
i think i'd prefer a real sub instead of that white "beauty"
Project Sigma should be ready soon. I saw a photo of her in the drydock today. Her funnels seem to be painted instead of the grey look they had before? We will have to wait untill she re-emerges once more for good!
She's getting a refit already??
She was just launched.
Did a warp drive already burn out a dilithium crystal? As I am regressing into my 2nd childhood, I must share this linky -
To my eye they appear to have a metallic finish.
Perhaps the grey was a protective coating?
Makes me wonder Although Sigma looks very milituristic I'm led to think about the difference in the look of Preditor when she went with the blue.
Your thought is very plausible PFJW. It looks so much better than that muted appearance and goes nicely with the chrome uptakes.
It is not a refit..Some paintwork was left for after sea-trials!
Project Sigma-SF99, has re-emerged today, the 21st of May 2008. Some pictures are available here:

Other than painting the funnels silver, what did they do?
BTW, Those gantry cranes in the background look as if they could pick Sigma up like a toy! They are seriously BIG!
