    This is the best photo I’ve seen of this boat. Beautiful boat. It would be great if the navy can build 5 more of this boat.

    The boat has two 20mm cannons and 2 GPMG pots or is that a 12.7mm HMG pot, I’m seeing at the top side of the boat?

    Great all round vessel. With this capacity, we do not need to import seaward defence boats in it’s class. We should see how we can grow capacity , expand production and even export in the near future. This could possible act also as a missile craft. We are patiently waiting to sea ANDONI’s sister ship, P200, this year.

    Shock and awe!!!

    Henry my brother, thanks for all the backstage yarn. Head FULL, man quiet.

    Yes, it has a 20mm cannon fore (DENEL-type, so say some of the SA suppliers who have chatted with me backstage), a CIS-50 12.7mm HMG aft and two GPMGs near the mast above.

    Look at this

      I agree with you oga henry, in no time, we’ll grow to meet all requirements in this class, move to missile boats, corvettes and frigates etc. I expect us to pursue this line bearing in mind that our chinese/indian OPV deal has a tech transfer package and hopefully, we’ll take the option and grow capacity

    Oga beeg wats d latest about the sister ship of andoni I heard its under construction

    • beegeagle says:

      Bro Anas, the given delivery date at the time when the ship was laid down in June 2012 – slated for December 2013. So we are still well within the stipulated timeline.

      Construction work on the 95 metre 1,800 ton P18N stealth OPV being built in China commenced in October 2012 while the 32 metre OCEA FPB 98 Mk.II being contructed in France is also slated for delivery this year.

      That OCEA patrol craft and Andoni’s sister ship might be commissioned on the same day 🙂

    There are many more naval platforms whose names you would not know, Giles. At the very least, all the platforms over 20 metres have names – OCEA, Shaldag, Swiftships, P2000 Watercraft etc.

    It might even surprise you to know that the Manta Mk.II ASD Littoral Interceptors have names, English names.

    The OCEA have names as follows

    NNS Badagry
    NNS Bomadi
    NNS Okpoku

    The 20 metre Swiftships

    NNS Iseyin
    NNS Eruwa
    NNS Afikpo
    NNS Aba.

    We have a Shaldag named “NNS Ikot Abasi” as well and there are others.

    Nobody seems to remember that the proposed US$850 million ABG Shipyards(from India) venture which is to be anchored at Calabar is expected to have a FG stakeholding of about 40%. The FG interest – OPVs for the Navy.

    Maybe tomorrow, I shall post a photo of a Made-in-Nigeria Modant Marine patrol boat with Army Special and Amphibious Forces riding in it. We also have a few first photos of naval assets which shall be featuring in the days to come.
