BNS INDEPENDENCIA - F44

Also taking part in Joint Warrior 10-01 was the Brazilian frigate INDEPENDENCIA, a ship designed in Britian by Vosper Thorneycroft but built in Brazil itself. She was laid down in 1974 and entered service some five years later after considerable delays during build. Powered by combined gas turbine and diesel engines, she has a maximum speed in the region of 30 knots.
