At its prime NNS Aradu was the most powerful warship in Africa. This frigate was armed with 40 ottomat anti-ship missiles in 8 vertical launch tube, 12 aspid missiles for air defence and the most sophisticated air defence fire control radar in the world. Pride of West Africa https:///PxojZiv11F

In topics like this, people rush to be first to comment. Then they have nothing to say after booking space. Lol

I am impressed that we have a dockyard that can do repairs and refitting even if we can't build our own ships yet

The whole Nigerian navy is no match for ordinary US Coast guards.

With warships like the Abdel Nasser , Egypt and South Africa currently has the best warships and navy in Africa. The Nigerian Navy barely makes the top 7. Even Asari dokubo's boys are better equipped than the Nigerian navy.

What is the current standing of Nigerdock...the vision for setting it up seem defeated, after it was sold off to some foreign national as a result of wide ranging corruption and embezzlement...that establishment ought to be building ships middle range aquatic machines and submarines by now if the mission statement is anything to go by..


But then this is Nigeria a country known for her lofty blueprints with shitty executions, Just as the critically acclaimed vision 2020 has placed us in the bottom of every positive global index and at the summit of every negative one.

Nice move but as it stands now we have only minimal control on pirates causing mayhem in our coastal territories. The government should eradicate this by providing enough gun boats, frigates and Corrvetes. We don't need submarine or aircraft carrier (jet) yet but what we need is at least two helicopter carrier with transport and attack choppers, that can respond to any pirate activities in our coastal territory. I know the Nigerian Navy has an agreement with most neighbouring west African countries and that was why the Nigerian Navy was able to rescue the Chinese fishing vessels that was hijacked at Ivory Coast few days ago. This frigate is too old and it will only be used for training of the personnel that will man the New frigate Nigeria just ordered. Lastly, no Navy can be strong without producing its own ships. China has the second best Navy in the world today and they achieved this by manufacturing their own battle ships and importing few of its weapon system. Nigeria Navy should enlarge its flying wings for Swift operation
