Modernized Venezuelan Frigate at Sea

Monday, October 22, 2001
The LUPO Class frigate Alimirante Brion (F-22), which is undergoing a modernization for the Venezuelan Armada by Northrop Grumman's Ingalls Operations, Pascagoula, Miss., sails through the Gulf of Mexico during the ship's first sea trial, October 17 to 18, 2001. During the sea trial, various systems were tested including propulsion, electronics and communications. The ship's combat systems will be tested during a second sea trial in November. Ingalls is also performing similar work on a second LUPO Class ship, Marsical Sucre (F-21), which has completed first trials and goes on combat systems trials later this month.
