A number of SES concpts were proposed in the 1990's - France built a demonstrator, so did Germany, and of course Norway put a minecounter measures boat and FAC into production and sweden developed an experimental stealth SES.

Hi JAZZ,

not a 1990 concept but intended to enter service by 1990.
Coming from Science et Vie 1970's unidentified issue.

Circular "Arsenal Ships" and Aircraft Carrier (a quite different USS Harry Truman ;D)

Wow, this is big!

Even during the Zumwalt era, the United States was only considering a 2,000 ton armed SES demonstrator.

Not 1990s but interesting for context, Iran just built an SES mine warfare vessel.
