This article focuses on the Australian-built Joint Venture (HSV-X1) and her sister ships, which are more than just high-speed transports or mine countermeasures vessels. The author describes his experiences at the ship design and testing department where he was assigned to a team of civilian engineers for a focus group to work on a vessel designed for “low-end” missions where speed would significantly improve performance. The author describes three missions namely Maritime Intercept Operations, Counternarcotic Operations and Maritime Escort Duties fulfilled by guided-missile destroyers.
