Seawaves reports on the delivery voyage of the former USCGC Douglas Munro on its way to Sri Lanka. As in previous cases you can see that the air-search radar, Phalanx CIWS, and 25mm guns have been removed while the 76mm Mk75 gun and Mk92 fire control system remain.
As reported by Wikipedia, this is the 11th of the 12 ships of the class to be handed over to a foreign navy or coast guard. In most cases, they are the largest units in their new parent organization. Using their former names, their distribution is as follows:
- Douglas Munro
- John Midgett
The only one of the class that remains is Mellon which is expected to go to Bahrain.
Sri Lanka has also been operating the former 210 foot, Medium Endurance Cutter USCGC Courageous since 2005.
