For stability at sea the DD-462`s are equipped with paravanes and sails.The alternative is active fin stabilisers and both systems have their pros and cons.In heavy beamseas the paravanes have their major advantage but will cost about 0,5 kts in speed. To deploy is easy but retrieval sometimes more tricky if still on an upset ocean.
