Great Britain's shipbuilder,Vosper Thorneycroft LTD, has offered plans to the British Navy for a stealthy corvette class ship called the "Sea
Wraith". The Sea Wraith's asymmetric towers, movable mast, wave-piercing bow, and several other innovative features will make it one of the
stealthiest and deadliest ships afloat. "Sea Wraith" will utilize a radar absorbing composite superstructure and deflecting angled design to achieve
stealth. High speed electric motors will make it very quiet.
Sea Wraith will take stealth a step further, using artificially generated mist to disguise it as a patch of fog. This cloud of mist would visually
mask the ship. At the same time, it would prevent infrared sensors from detecting "hot" spots created by the ship's powerplant or recently fired

Anyone have any new news about this?
