The Visby Class Corvette will enjoy the advantages of a Combined Diesel or Gas (CODOG) turbine arrangement in which the diesel engines are used for low-speed mine hunting and ASW missions, while the four turbines can be operated either individually or in pairs to provide cruise or high-speed dash capability. The integration of these features into a single gearbox, the design of the Allied Signal model TF50A turbine engine, and the integration of the CODOG system into the ship is discussed herein. Attention is focused on the unique design features which provide the “stealth” capabilities of this ship.
