The Mohammed VI is a very powerful FREMM class friagte. Surely she is now the flagship of the Moroccan Navy.




I wonder if the Moroccans plan any other new purchases for their navy?

Hello everyone, I came across the story in the link below about Kenya forming a new coast guard and that they have an
offshore patrol vessel under construction in India, and was hoping someone could please provide me with information on which type of ship they are having built?
