One day they might be able to use a Chinese built and supplied 'Malvinas' patrol boat to chase down illegal Chinese poachers. Would they dare?Mar 04th, 2016 - 10:08 am - Link - Report abuse 0

Jibber-jabber wouldn't cut it.
Why didn't the argie fire on it? OH NO! They don't have any ammunition for any caliber gun!
As for Uruguay, the little 'sloop' sized vessels they have are probably half the size of the jigger and of course would be captained by a Broad Fraud political placement aka as a coward.
A fucking Chinese jigger running two LatAm countries in circles FFS!

The main power plants are 2 German Diesel engine made but MTU a subsidiary of Rolls Royce.
If they are to be called the Malvinas class as reported maybe we should refuse to supply the motors.

No further knowledge beyond what was already posted, the topic was not extensively covered, and so far the new gov has not made significant announcements on defense :p
I´ll check some local forums, maybe some folks there have a word on that topic.

If you've ever dealt with the children that work in the security forces in Costa Rica, you'd wish they had a properly disciplined and trained professional military instead.

Your stupidity never ceases to surprise us.........besides your being wrong, once again, might do you some good to rethink your blind support of the Chinks......they will stop at nothing to get what they need, and after Brazil has fallen into their trap, don't think that they will give a damn about you.

Nothing at all about this in El Pais Uruguay.
Nothing at all about this in El Observador, Uruguay.
They need to compile a video of the two Argentine ships chasing the Chinese ship then add the helicopter then add the Uruguayan aircraft and ship all set to the Benny Hill music. :-DMar 04th, 2016 - 07:06 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

The use of spy trawlers etc is a bit old hat.
satelites are a rather more modern method.Also a submarine with an ESM mast.
GCHQ can spy on communications without anyone leaving the country.
