    First Patrol Ship Damen Stan Patrol 5009
    Small patrol ships of the Damen Stan Patrol 5009 project (the first two digits in the designation of the project mean the length of the hull in meters along the waterline, the second two digits the width) have become in recent years a genuine hit of the Damen group's defense sector. These ships use the original vertical bow contours of the hull, referred to as the “ax bow” (“bow-shaped nose”) and originally developed by Damen for high-speed Sea Ax type transport vessels used in offshore oil and gas production. In addition to the military, the ships of the Stan Patrol 5009 project are also being built in civilian auxiliary and transport-passenger versions (the Damen Fast Crew Supply 5009 project is mainly for servicing offshore oil and gas fields).

    And this ax will behave like an excitement. The collapse of the sides there. I think it only calmly is good.
