The Mistery of the Spanish frigate

This is Spanish frigate Alvaro de Bazan (F-101) , the most modern frigate of Europe. Ita has Aegis system incorporated.

Nobody would have said that it was going to be in the Gulf just now in Operation "Enduring Freedom".

Well, it is.

This Mr. Zapatero, the pacifist....

If you read the links carefully there is also one ship from Germany.

Wow, I have no idea what you two are talking about.

Shows you how much I know about the Navy.

Aegis is a US Sea-based Ballistic Missile Defense. You can read about it here:

At first, only US could use it. But Bush allowed Spain (when Aznar) to have it on our ships.

In that web you can search for AEGIS and there are a lot of information.

No, that isn't the most modern Spanish frigate. That's is a second hand Knox class frigate sold to Mexico. You can see a MBB Bö-105 helo from the Mexican Navy above it.
