we already know that its an OPV due to its assumed role. The P18N was derived from a corvette. just like NNS Okpabana is a Patrol cutter but we still call it a Frigate anytime we want to refer to it.


your responce is annoying because it is not needed since we all know its an OPV. it shows that you prefer argument over logical discussion.

the question was 'what is the armanment like?' SIMPLE AND SHORT.

Sir, it is an OPV. You cannot compare an OPV with a Corvette.

Paramount pushing for collaboration to combat West African maritime crime
Paramount Group, attending a maritime conference in Ghana, has called for stronger collaboration between West African governments and the private sector to create defence solutions in response to illegal fishing and terrorism faced by navies in the Gulf of Guinea.

The call was made on 28 March during the Coastal and Maritime Surveillance Africa Conference and Defence Exhibition (CAMSA 2017) in Accra, Ghana, which seeks to explore ways to tackle the rising incidence of piracy, armed robberies at sea, oil theft and other criminal activities in the maritime environment with a view to increasing maritime security in the region.

Eric Ichikowitz, Vice President of Paramount Group said: “We will work with sovereign navies who understand that the responsibility for maritime security lies with the Navy and should not to be outsourced; to develop and acquire naval fleets, be it offshore patrol vessels or close support vessels, that are customized to their requirement and we will do this with the required commitment to skills transfer and local industrial capacity development.

“Preparing for the threats that our navies are facing would be challenging under any circumstances and is made more complex by the global financial crisis and the impact that the crash in the oil price has had on the continent. Given these challenges, we believe that governments in the region will look to prioritising increased collaboration with the private sector to bolster both domestic innovation, economic development and national security.”

James Fisher, CEO of the maritime division of Paramount Group, said: “We believe the defence and commercial maritime sector has an obligation to support governments in the region by developing sustainable industrial partnerships that deliver mission appropriate, affordable and sustainable defence solutions built for Africa by Africans.

“Given that such partnerships involve the end user during design and production, the technologies can be effectively localised to ensure it meets operational requirements. Appropriate technology should be the buzzword, especially in Africa where each nation faces uniquely challenging threats and environments. With focused design, governments enhance their defence capability and avoid the problem of procuring imported equipment that was never designed to be suited exactly for local conditions and requirements. Appropriate technology and mindset are the key factors in reducing defence spending.

Ichikowitz added: “Innovative design should also lead to affordable design. New production methodologies and modern materials make it possible to integrate and construct sophisticated defence systems from commercial off-the-shelf components thus reducing costly technical risk. Innovative equipment is also increasingly multi-functional, able to stabilise diverse threats at one streamlined cost.

“Naval vessels used for patrol and interdiction functions one day must be able to perform humanitarian relief operations the following day. These features and multi-function capabilities are not easy to develop, but they are imperative to responsive and affordable defence.”

Nautic Africa, part of the Paramount Group, has done a fair amount of business in West Africa, and for instance last year launched four Sentinel vessels for offshore security and support. The company has sold a number of Sentinels to West Africa, and in August 2015 launched two of the 35 metre vessels for a Nigerian customer, the Augustina II and Princess Ebikenie. Nautic Africa concluded a R600 million deal in mid-2013 to build seven of the 35 m multi-role patrol vessels for West African clients. The first of class, MV Queen Alaere and MV Sir Emeka Offor, were launched in August 2014.

Nautic Africa/Paramount offers patrol boats in a number of lengths. Its 85 metre Frontier Off Shore Patrol Vessel, for example, is one of its largest designs and can operate a helicopter off the rear deck. Paramount said it is designed in Africa for African conditions.

Well, everything was in place for the exercise. Defence Intelligence had other ideas. The Germans have been coming to Overberg bi-annually for 10 years now, FFS.
First they intrude into the SAAF's tactical realm by acquiring Seeker 400 UAVs, now this. One would think DI has something against the SAAF!

EE-11 Urutu of Tunisia, with 90mm gun. Also known as the "Uruvel".

These were so popular that at one time the Americans wanted to buy them for the US Marine Corps. It combined the three things they wanted most: troop carrying capacity, amphibious capability, and a large fire support weapon.

The programme was canceled, some say because of the pressure of the American defence industry which didn't want such a lucrative contract going to Brazil.

In the end all the Uruvels produced were sold to Tunisia, where they remain in service today.

The unprofessional conduct of a few does not constitute an affront for disrepute to the general professionalism of the Nigerian Army.

Especially when taken into account that the Nigerian Army has disciplinary channels with which the force deals with unprofessional conduct by some of it's personnel as we have seen on multiple occasions.

I find it quite unfortunate that most of you non-active thread contributors have a phobia for good news, appearing mostly when there are arguments or once there is an unpleasant remark to be made.

TEAM HQ NAF EMERGES BEST OVERALL AS NAF COMBAT SPORTS COMPETITION ENDS

Team Headquarters Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has emerged the best overall winner of the NAF Inter-Command Combat Sports Competition with 9 gold, 4 silver and 2 bronze medals. The four days competitive sporting activities dubbed ‘Jos 2017’ began on Monday, 27 March 2017 with 6 teams competing for honours. Team Training Command came 2nd with 8 gold, 4 silver and 5 bronze medals while Team Special Operations Command won 2 gold, 4 silver and 2 bronze medals to clinch the 3rd position.
Team Logistics Command came 4th with 2 gold, 3 silver and 5 bronze medals, Team Tactical Air Command with 1 gold, 6 silver and 6 bronze medals was in the 5th position and Team Mobility Command with 1 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze medals came 6th.

Addressing participants at the end of the Competition, the Special Guest of Honour and the Executive Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello stated that the excellent skills and talents displayed during the event by participants left no one in doubt of NAF capability of defending the territorial integrity of Nigeria. While commending the NAF for organising the combat sports competition, the Governor used the occasion to acknowledge the tremendous successes recorded by the current NAF leadership.
Earlier in his remarks, the Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Barrister Solomon Dalong described the combat sports competition as a platform to promote grassroots’ sports in the country. The Minister pledged the support of his ministry in the development of sports in both military and paramilitary by providing sporting facilities to boost the capacity of the athletes. “We are so proud of our military and paramilitary, they have been providing the country with talents that have made us proud but we have not invested so much in the development of their facilities”, he said.

While addressing journalists, the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar said that the NAF was established to protect the territorial integrity of the country. To perform this statutory role, “we must have the right skills, endurance, the right training and spirit of competition. What we are doing has a way of impacting positively on our operations”.
