A design circa 1984.
A 750 ton catamaran patrol ship from BAZAN which never purchased the Armada Española (Spanish Navy).
Projected max speed: 50 knots
Dimensions: 50m x 20 m x 5 m

The armed ultralights are just atrezzo. (The idea of fighting ultra-light was very popular on those days)

Courtesy of Patrick Tilley's "Amtrak Wars" perhaps? ;D

Wow! quite interesting. I didn't knew about that books. Thanks for the info.
There also examples in movies like Mad Max and Water World.

But back to the real World I remember a Data File about armed ultra-lights from Air international. I'll try to post more info and open a new topic about ultra-light fighting aircraft.
