  1. ^ Note that the roles Offshore patrol vs. Coastal patrol are not standardized across different navies. For the purposes of this article, the OP vessel is considered the heavier and more oceanic role, with significantly more range or endurance, drawing the line arbitrarily at a displacement of roughly 200 tonnes vs. the CP. Nevertheless, many CP vessels are capable of oceanic navigation within reason, and OP vessels are also routinely used in coastal patrol missions.
