    Hear she was trashing the Exocet's and getting fitted for Harpoons. Any further info on that??

    Yes, the mountings for Harpoon canisters have been already tested/installed aboard the ship. Perhaps they will be fitted as in Batch 3 RN Type 22s.

    The Sea Wolf launcher is already gone as well, as it will be replaced by a Barak VLS cell.

    Hey guys, looking for some good quality pics of the "Comandos de la Infanterķa de Marina". A link maybe?

    In the Armada web page there isn't much.

    The only ones I found in the net are those with pro-tecs and MP5s in a UNITAS exercise.

    Gracias!

    Here's some that you can start with.Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    www.defensa.pe/forumdisplay.php?f=50

    www.booksofchile.cl/detalle.php?opcion=1@1d=17 (an excellent book on Cuerpo infanteria de Marina de la Armada de Chile)

    There's some suff on youtube.com under 'Armada de Chile','Comandos Chilenos','Infanteria de Marina' etc. Also, have you googled 'Infanteria de marina de la Armada de chile'? You'd be quite surprised at what turns up under both 'text' and 'images'.

    Thanks mate! Yep done all of the above, seen a couple of Comandos vids in youtube (I'm looking for stills though), search several spanish speaking forums and got close to nil in pics of the Comandos.
