The gunboats HS ORMI (P-230) and HS TOLMI (P-229) are the two "ASHEVILLE" class gunboats (ex USS BEACON/PG-99 and GREEN Bay/PG 101) of the Hellenic Navy.
They were originally constructed for the crisis of Cuba. The gunboats were transferred to the Hellenic Navy from the US Navy.
The design and construction was oriented to achieve high speed and for that reason the ships are made of aluminum, the superstructure is made
of polyester and aluminum frame, achieving a total displacement of approximately 230 TN, while the turbine GENERAL ELECTRIC LM-1500 initially brought, was developing speed of 40 kts. In 1996 the main gas turbine was replaced by two new type main diesel engines MTU 12V 396 TE 94. In 2003 the main 3'' gun 3/50 was replaced by BOFFORS 40mm.

This model cannot be sold as payware in any form. You can use it for your own entertainment in Vehicle Simulator or Virtual Sailor NG.
I had to make some necessary modifications in order for the boats to resemble the ORMI - TOLMI class ships. I also added a bridge panel with vintage analog instruments along with some digital ones. All the instruments can be re-used providing that you give me some credit.
Just copy the contents of this package into your VSF (or VS) /vehicles installation folder (overwrite the existing folders if any). Inside the HS_ORMI folder you will find a HS_TOLMI subfolder with the necessary files for the sister ship.
HS ORMI has elements for VSF while TOLMI has elements for Virtual Sailor NG. They can sail in both simulators but with different speeds. The ships bear an animated Hellenic Navy flag and carry two rotating radars. The bow and aft flagpoles are animated and they can be lowered or raised with Ctrl-A. The bridge doors open and close with Ctrl-D.
All weapons are fully functional with real life data.
