The Nigerian Navy (NN) has announced plans to commission the two new warships and three new helicopter gunships it acquired last month.

NN Spokesman, Commodore David Nabaida, said here that the two 38-metre Fast Patrol Craft (FPCs) and the three new Augusta helicopter gunships procured from Italy would be commissioned this month at Nigeria’s premier naval base -- NNS Beecroft - in Lagos.

The new platforms are in addition to the four 17-metre Manta boats that the Navy received into service in November last year.

The two 38-metre FPCs, designed by Suncraft International Inc. Singapore, are slated for naval patrol duties, including general policing missions in coastal waters, customs control and anti-terrorist operations at sea, offshore protection and tracking, surveillance of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), defence and protection of national sea areas and operations within integrated task forces.

Designed for a crew of 25 officers and ratings, the FPCs have an individual speed of 32.0 knots at half load with a speed range of 1500nm (nautical miles) at 15 knots and 1000 nm at 24 knots. Already, the crew of the new vessels have been designated and have commenced training on board.

Nigeria Loses 12 Peacekeepers on UN Missions (2008)

Nigeria has lost 12 military and police personnel on United Nations peacekeeping missions to some troubled spots in 2008, according to the reports of the News Agency of Nigeria reaching here on Monday.

A list of UN peacekeepers, that lost their lives in the line of duty, indicated that a total of 132 soldiers and police personnel from 47 countries died between January and December last year.

The list noted that the highest casualties were recorded by Nigerian troops in the year under review. It also disclosed that most of the Nigerian peacekeepers died in Sudan's Darfur region while serving under the UN-AU Mission in Darfur (UNAMID). Others, it said, were killed following violence in Liberia, Haiti and Timor Leste.

According to the reports, Nigeria is ranked fourth among the 118 UN troop contributing countries. It presently has a total of 5, 778 military and police officers serving on various UN peacekeeping missions.

becomerich is a clown,The nigerian army is one of the most integrated of the nigerian populace,they dont care about tribe
it has become more proffesional,and more deadly since the return of civilian rule
since the military rulers in the 1980-2000period where mostly afraid of coup and didnt buy necessary equipment,
witness the crushing of the boko-haram nonsense,by air and ground forces backed up by Tanks
i wish becomerich good luck in his suicide mission

Huhuonline.com also reported that the Nigerian Navy bought six Manta-class offshore patrol vessels from Malaysia and Singapore last year. The Navy requested and procured 35 new machine-gun equipped fast patrol boats, which, on the instructions of the Presidency, were paid for by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

The first consignment of two 38 meter Manta-class patrol boats built by the Nautica Nova Shipbuilding yard in Malaysia and fully financed by NNPC have already been delivered to the Navy. Defense ministry sources told Huhuonline.com that another four 17 meter Manta-class patrol boats from Singapore Technologies Marine have also been delivered while talks are currently underway with French and British shipyards.

Huhuonline.com understands that France's DCNS (Direction des Constructions Navales Services) - a naval defence company and one of Europe's leading shipbuilders - had long hoped to sell Nigeria several of its small Gowind-class corvettes for a total cost of $800 million. In its bid the French shipyard was backed by France's procurement agency, Délégation Générale pour l'Armement (DGA), which sent several lobbyists to Abuja last year.

But the proactive Israeli lobby in Aso Rock prevailed on the President and Israeli Shipyards were chosen to supply the patrol vessels, which are reportedly less costly but also considerably smaller (24.8m) and hence easier to operate in the Delta creeks than the French patrol boats.

Since the early 2000s Israel has drawn closer to Nigeria. Before he was named head of Mossad, Israel's foreign intelligence agency, in 2002, Meir Dagan visited Nigeria prospecting on behalf of several Israeli defense companies. Huhuonline.com checks reveal that in 2006, Israel's Aeronautics Defense Systems (ADS) signed an agreement with then-president Olusegun Obasanjo to install a surveillance system for the Delta and Nigeria's territorial waters with Aerostar unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and unmanned Seastar vessels.

The Israeli daily Haaretz's revelation of the contract negotiated without the authorization of Israel's defense ministry resulted in its cancellation, and the Nigerian defense ministry lost money that had been advanced to ADS. In addition to Shaldag patrol boats, the Nigerian Navy has acquired 20 troop-carrying catamarans from the Dutch yard TP Marine. To conduct effective operations in the Delta, the armed forces will need to quickly dispatch soldiers up creeks and rivers in the area. The catamarans are aimed at measuring up to MEND's outboard vessels. They will be operated by the Joint Task Force, an inter-service unit in charge of operations in the Niger Delta.

RussianHelicopters.
One strategic advantage of the JTF over the Niger Delta militants is air superiority. The Air Force has indeed ordered four Agusta A109E helicopters as well as Russian MI-24 and MI-34 helicopters. The Italian Agustas haven't yet arrived, but sources told Huhuonline.com that the Russian aircraft were delivered just before Russian president Dimitri Medvedev's visit last June.


The rest of the Nigerian military's helicopter fleet, consisting mainly of Super Pumas made by Eurocopter; Super Lynx's (AgustaWestland) and Russian MI-35s, are not in flying condition at present. President Yar'adua has directed the Air Force to call on its Western partners to recondition them with new rotor blades. Once renovated they will be able to intervene in the Niger Delta in tandem with the new Nigerian patrol boats.
