BRITISH-BUILT CORVETTES FOR OMAN

SNV QAHIR AL AMWAJ is the first of two 83m corvettes being built by Vosper Thornycroft, UK, for the Royal Navy of Oman. Her surface and air weapons capabilities are demonstrated by an Oto Melara 76mm super rapid gun, Exocet MM 40 surface-to-surface missile system and twin locally controlled GAMB01 20mm gun mountings, while the flight deck aft is large enough to land a Super Puma helicopter.
