  Built in the 60's and 70's, the Hamilton is a traditional cutter in the Coast Guard sense.  Helmed by 'fly-by-wire' technology, the Hamilton's are used for embargoes and even in war patrols.  In a matter of a few weeks, the Hamilton's can be converted to carry Harpoon and towed array.  Though this is extreme, in T:2000, assume it has been done already for those units still surviving.  These ocean going vessels are fast and nimble, making them excellent at a variety of interception and preventative patrols.

 One of the first medium endurance cutters with a hanger (telescopic), the Famous class was built in the 90's.  Very lively in rough seas, these inexpensive to run ships are effective for coastal protection and anti-drug patrols in the Gulf of Mexico.  Fully automated, plans to adapt Harpoon and CIWS were dropped to keep costs from skyrocketing for the class.

Designed in the 70's as a 'modular' design concept, the OHP is inexpensive to build and repair.  Many nations throughout the world use the OHP including Spain, Turkey and Australia (those class names listed in brackets).  A decent frigate and ASW platform, the OHP is used in a variety of roles in its escort capacity.  Two helos are carried aboard and are hangered in the aft.  The 76mm turret is mid-ships, above the hanger.  A ship of curious lore, the U.S.S. Stark was hit by an Iraqi missile in 1987, and the U.S.S. Samuel R. Roberts struck a mine in 1988.  The namesake ship, U.S.S. Oliver Hazard Perry (FFG-7) has herself been paid off.
