Quite right. They only mounted a pair of 40 MM bofors. These frigates were built at a time when it was thought quantity was better than quality. They had the advantage of putting more A/S vessels to sea at less cost, being smaller than the Type 12, using one half of their power plant and being more economical of manpower. The experiment wasn't repeated. They really proved their worth as fisheries protection vessels during the "cod war" with Iceland.
