Spain shows-off modern warship on visit to South Africa | DefenceWeb

Spain is hoping that the South African Navy (SAN) shows more than a passing interest in the Spanish Navy’s newest Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) that is paying a visit to South Africa.

The ESPS Rayo, a ‘Meteoro’ class Maritime Action Ship built by Spanish shipyard Navantia, is one of the most modern ships in the Spanish Navy and was commissioned in May 2011. She is the second of four BAM (Buque de Acción Marítima) modular Offshore Patrol Vessels built for the Spanish Navy. The BAM ships are adaptable to different missions, based on a common platform.
