Then Argentines and Uruguayans are interested in getting our modification of the type 056. For the Argentines, they apparently want the antisubmarine version and a deck capable of handling a larger helicopter,this is to counter British sub around the Malvinas/falkland islands.
I would really like the F.G. to make another 2 orders to be built here. Guess we will have to wait and see the 2015 budget for the Navy post elections.
If I were pressed,I’d prefer we mastered building this class ship with anti.sub capabilities that buying a sub for the immediate future. My opinion.
True, I saw that report as well. Regardless of the interminably disparaging ramble which some of us like to get into when it concerns China and hardware, we ACTUALLY got something good and that is why the Argentines and Uruguayans are looking to acquire replicas of our P18N ships.
Good for the month of February gentlemen.
Trust most online reports to ignore this and concentrate on possible bad news from Maiduguri (they hope.
Anyway, safe sailing NNS Centenary.
Unrelated but here WE GO AGAIN.
Oga Jimmy. Here we go again and there we go again: ko ya ka che?
Sail on and God be with you
Nice. A good addition to the Nigerian fleet! I expect Nigeria to make good use of this ship once it enters service.
Oga Beeg there is a certain rumor that Gwoza has been retaken by the MNJTF
That is over 250km removed from the Baga district of northern Borno which is the AOR of the MNJTF. I have to doubt that as you can imagine.
Methinks the consistent association of Gwoza with Chadian activity stems from the fact that the highland town lies close to precincts in Cameroon’s Far North where Chadian troops are deployed.
NA for God’s. Sake hire a firm in the interim to handle your PR and propaganda.
A group that would combine film footage from the front, pictures from the front, audio interviews from our victorious soldiers. From the front.
You can disseminate the content. Via youtube, NA website, beegeagles blog, etc etc.
Please, show the country the footage of the newly acquired weaponry in action.
Nigerians. Need and deserve a moral boost.
While I will remain a harsh and unapologetic critic of those that brought NA to this new low, I realise that a major effort is underway to redress the status quo.
SO NA, Don’t Let anyone, steal your thunder.
Don’t. Let anyone. Usurp the glory that you earn on the battle field.
I would not begrudge. Chad or Cameroon of their honest accomplishments, so let Nigeria celebrate the victory of our troops when it happens.
After all, we have borne the bad news and the military set backs.
Remember sierra leone, and the bbc led conspiracy that usurped the exploits of NA, that was paid for in blood.
We are responsible for the defense of our image.
No lies or embellishments needed, just a fair and substantial documentation of the truth.
pls let it b 4 more wit a 100mm gun ,4 *2 AAM,4*2AShM,1 CIWS.and also armed d twin Hamilton class CGS and we are good to go.
Anytime I see this ship.. my joy know no bound, also its my humble appeal to the NN to consider placing order for 4 more of this ship but at the same time arming the with missile launching capability to form the next line our multipurpose frigate. Its cheaper to run and maintain and also bearing in mind that NNS thunder and Okpabana can only last us another 15 years if well maintained.
Also, the need to have a Gulf of Guinea command is imperative as our economic main stay reside there making imperative that the sooner we think of acquiring the Type 037-II FAC to replace our aging FAC the better for our dear nation Nigeria.
NNS centenary, God bless you and may your service to the Nigerian state be glorious.
Amen! NN, even if F-91 NNS Centenary has environmental control equipment permanently,make sure she prolongs her reach and strengthens her war fighting abilities by embarking 2 x KA-28 helicopters with an imperious 900km range and multi-mission capability both as an ASW and early warning chopper, configurable as desired.
It seems as though Argentina will go for 5 ships,with three built at home.
…….China and Argentina had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in
October 2014 on co-operation in defence technology and industry. The joint
development programmes were reported as finalised during a Chinese defence
trade delegation’s visit to Buenos Aires in late January.
Argentina could buy two warships and co-produce three more in Argentina. The
P18 corvette is 1,800 tonnes, is 95 m long, and is powered by two MTU 20V
4000M diesel engines. Argentina wants the corvettes to be able to land its Sea
King helicopters and towed sonar……
The News agency of Nigeria is reporting that the NN Centenary will be in Nigerian Waters by the end of this week , I don’t think that is possible however I am just regurgitating
Is The NNS Centenary in Lagos already? am seeing the NNS Centenary as docked in Lagos on a marine tracking website
