Second Brazilian Navy Amazonas class OPV "APA" departs from BAE Systems Shipyard

The latest addition to the Brazilian Navy’s fleet departed the UK in the snow today for her new home in Rio de Janeiro where she will strengthen Brazil’s maritime security. APA is the second of three Amazonas Class Ocean Patrol Vessels being delivered to the Brazilian Navy by BAE Systems. Her sister ship, AMAZONAS, completed the crossing last year, while the final ship, ARAGUARI, will be handed over in June.
