    As for her name, i’ll go for NNS CENTENARY and the second one should be NNS INDEPENDENCE or UNITY. I don’t see the NN giving them names of individuals as it’s not the culture.

    It wouldn’t be a bad idea if the incoming new ships were named after the literal translations of thunder to various Nigerian languages.

    Post-2008, it appears as if the NN have christened their vessels to either reflect Nigerian place names such as ‘NNS Badagry’, NNS Ikot Abasi, NNS Onitsha, NNS Burutu, NNS Andoni, NNS Zaria. This holds true for Shaldag/OCEA patrol craft and Sea Eagle OPCs.

    Other vessels, such as the Manta Mk.II ASD littoral interceptors got meaningful names such as

    NNS Fortress
    NNS Striker
    NNS Phantom
    NNs Vangaurd
    NNS Conquest
    NNS Faith
    NNS Harmony
    NNS Valour
    NNS Ranger
    NNS Titan
    NNS Nemesis
    NNS Storm

    Hey Guys I just read that USA may. Have deployed Ballistic Missile Defence Destroyer to Spain don’t know if such is true wanted us to trash it if such is possible, Secondly I would go with NNS Centenary and we can have a “Class” depending on if we plan to acquire more of the same OPVs in the near future
