    Wow, this looks like an enlarged RBS Defender boat with walk-around capabilities.

    When I visited the Navy SBS Camp in Lagos, I was told by some officers during the course of a guided tour that the principal shortcoming entailed in the combat deployment of the 9m RBS Defender is the fact that it does not afford troops that walkaround capability which would allow forward-facing and aft-facing weapons to be traversed in a 180-degree line of fire.

    This 13metre patrol boat apparently takes care of that challenge – a good acquisition for special operations, amphibious and littoral warfare units in the Niger Delta and in coastal precincts.

    The 13 metre Aryan 1300 thus makes up for the principal handicaps of the hugely successful 9 metre RBS Defender – by incorporating stealth features and a walkaround configuration.

    GOOD NEWS.
    NIGERIAN NAVY PUT MORE PLATFORMS BACK TO SEA

    Looks like the NN have put some more patrol boats/craft back to work.

    Read

    ” • New Contract Award

    A & C Engineering was awarded a contract to refurbish two (2) Patrol Boats (227 & 229) for the Nigerian Navy. The Patrol boats were refurbished and delivered in Calabar to the Nigerian Navy.”

    Some other new patrol boats have been acquired. You should get to see those in a day or two.

    This can’t be a stealth boat……the C-27 you saw at the sbs base is a stealth interceptor not this,oga beegeagle.

    Waoh!

    🙂 It isn’t always about the lowest silhouette, Oga Tim. Yes the NC 27 Night Cat and the K38 Combat Catamaran are fathomably stealth boats based on their radar-evading silhouette.

    However, construction materials and radar-absorbing paint are other sides to the story, even as the the Aryan 1300-series also has a low silhouette. I did engage in some backstage back and forth exchanges before we captioned this thread.

    And for emphasis, I was also made to understand that it is the reason why “STEALTH” is clearly embossed on the hulls of the boats.

    The exhaust, noise and wake suppression mechanism as well as internalisation of weapons and radar systems is as much a factor for a stealth vessel. Its not about being difficult to see, its about being difficult to detect or identify.

  8. beegeagle says:

    That is absolutely true, Oga Eyimola. This was what I mentioned to Oga Ifiok ref the “clutter free” Sea Eagle Mk.II OPCs. Compare the super structure to that of the older 58 metre ships for instance which have all their weaponry, missiles, radars and navtronics showing. All of those cannot be seen on the Sea Eagle OPCs.

    The said matter of heat signatures which radars lock onto is the reason why the Mi-17V5 and Mi-171Sh Terminator have their exhaust fumes curbed in such a way as was not the case with the older Mi-17s
