For all roles except anti-pollution, the ship carries one 76 mm Otobreda Super Rapid gun which fires 120 rounds per minute and has a range of 16 km. For surface combat roles, two 533 mm torpedo tubes are fitted with Bofors TP613 wire-guided passive homing torpedoes. For ASW roles, anti-submarine torpedoes and depth charge launchers are carried. the AGM-84 (Harpoon) surface-to-surface missile system is fitted for the surface combat role, as is the Mk 48 NATO Vertical Launch Sea Sparrow surface-to-air missile system. The Mk 48 Mod 3 launcher (for vessels under 1000 tons) has cells for six missiles. Mine rails for 60 bottom mines are fitted for mine laying missions. The hull is constructed of an FRP (fibre-reinforced plastic) sandwich with a cellular core between outer and inner FRP laminates. This material reduces weight and maintenance, since it is non-magnetic. Electro-magnetic compatibility (EMC) in the non-metallic hull is achieved by sprayed layers of zinc and shielding
of cable glands and penetrating non-metallic pipes and ducts.

HAWSER

In ships, a hawser is a large rope. A hawser differs from a cable as consisting of only three strands, whereas a cable has no less than nine. A hawser may of course be as thick as a cable, its thickness depending upon the amount of yarns put into each strand. A cable may be regarded as composed of three hawsers.

The word hawser means a cable used at the hawse; and the hawse is the sea space immediately in front of a ship at anchor by two cables at the bows, so that it is sometimes complained of another ship that 'she anchored in our hawse', as running a danger of fouling the anchor-cables etc. The word hawser comes from the old Norse word for neck (hals).

HERON

The USS Heron is an American Osprey Class mine hunter. The Osprey Class ships are the world's largest glass reinforced plastic (GRP) ships and are the first United States Navy ships designed solely for mine hunting. The technique used to locate mines is by high definition sonar and the mines are neutralised with a remotely controlled underwater vehicle. The platform has been designed with exceptionally low magnetic and acoustic signatures to protect against mine detonations during mine hunting operations. The ship has two Isotta Franschini ID 36 SS 8V AM diesel engines which provide 1,600 hp and drive two Voith Schneider cycloidal propellers for increased manoeuvrability. The non magnetic diesel engines are similar to those used in the US Navy's Avenger Class Mine Countermeasures Vessels. The three diesel generators are Isotta Franschini ID 36. The machinery is acoustically isolated and suspended from the main deck in glass reinforced plastic cradles. When an undersea explosion occurs the isolated machinery remains
unaffected. For defence, the ship has two 12.7 mm machine-guns.

HOVERCRAFT

A hovercraft (ACV) is a vehicle - first invented in Britain by Christopher Cockerell during the 1950s, and based upon the theories of Sir John Thornycroft drawn up in the 1870s that a ship's drag could be reduced by trapping air between the bottom of the hull and the water - which is supported by a cushion of air projected downwards by a fan and trapped within a fabric skirt around the base of the vehicle. This cushion of air enables hovercraft to travel over both land and sea, and makes them very versatile and suitable for military applications such as amphibious landings.
The first practical hovercraft, the SR.N1 was lunched in 1959. The SR.N1 weighed four tons, and could carry three men at a speed of 25 knots over land or very calm water.

HVIDBJORNEN

The Hvidbjornen is a Danish Thetis class multi-role frigate used for fishery protection, surveillance, air-sea rescue, anti-pollution and ice reconnaissance. The armament consists of one Otobreda 76 mm Super Rapid main gun, one or two 20 mm guns from Oerlikon, and depth charge throwers. The Super Rapid gun has a rate of fire of 120 rounds per minute and a range of 16 km. The fire control system is the CelsiusTech 9LV 200 Mk 3. A FLIR Systems Inc AN/AAQ-22 SAFIRE thermal imaging system is used for surveillance. All weapon and equipment systems are connected through the frigates' command, control and communications system. The frigate has a landing deck with a landing spot for a single helicopter. Helicopter support arrangements include a glide path indicator (GPI) and a flight refuelling system.

The hangar is equipped for helicopter maintenance and has capacity to hold a Lynx helicopter without having to fold the helicopter tail. The hangar is fitted with a full width door. The frigate has a double-skinned hull up to two metres above the water-line. The hull is divided by ten bulkheads into watertight compartments such that the vessels are able to sustain hull damage up to eight metres in length without dangerous instability problems. For ship propulsion, one engine-room and the gear-room can be water-filled at the same time, and the frigates will still be able to proceed. The basic hull shape corresponds to that of a high-speed trawler. The frames in the bow and stern are very closely spaced. Amidships the thickness of the outer skin has been increased. The propeller is protected against ice by a bulb in the stern There are no bilge keels, but stabilisation is achieved by a combination of fin stabilizers from Blohm and Voss and a controlled passive tank system supplied by Intering. To minimise ice formation on the superstructure, all winches, capstans, etc. are placed under deck. The forecastle deck is trawler shaped and all open deck spaces and scuppers are heated. The allowed amount of icing is 375 tons.

The propulsion machinery consists of three MAN B&W V28/32 diesel engines with combined power of 9000 kW, fitted in two separate watertight compartments on each side of the gear compartment. The reduction gear box is able to operate under water. The fitted bow thruster is able to hold the bow against a wind of 28 knots. A retractable azimuth thruster is capable of propelling the ship at 10 knots, and can be considered as an emergency machinery set in case of damage to propeller or gears or total engine failure. A shaft generator of 1500 kW is located in the forward engine room, and there are three GM Detroit diesel motors with Volund Teknik generators, each with an output of 480 kW, installed with one in the forward and two in the aft engine room. An 127 kW emergency diesel generating set is fitted in a compartment under the forecastle deck. The ship has an endurance of 8300 nautical miles at varying speeds with a 10 per cent fuel reserve. Provisions cover four months' operations, and the stocks of spare parts are sufficient for six months at sea without replenishment. Helicopter fuel suffices for 150 flying hours. The frigate is ice strengthened and is able to proceed through 80 cm of solid ice. The hull has an icebreaking bow and stem lines suitable for operations in ice with only one propeller. Maximum continuous speed is 20 knots in four metre seas. The sea keeping qualities allow the ship to stand up to wind gusts of 150 knots during light ice conditions and operate in all sea conditions at speeds of 4-5 knots.
