    MCM Mine Countermeasures Ships:
    Non-Magnetic hulls, Non-Magnetic Isotta Fraschini Diesel Engines,
    All systems are non-magnetic..
    The Isotta Fraschini, was Gloria Swanson’s luxury car in Sunset Boulevard..
    This is a very special diesel engine, and because of that uniqueness, no ferritic
    components are contaminating the supply chain..
