New Colombian Landing Craft

The Colombian Navy (ARC) recently launched two new landing craft in the presence of Mariana Martínez Cuellar, Vice Minister of Defence for Strategy and Planning. The ARC GOLFO DE MORROSQUILLO (pennant number 242) and ARC BAHIA MALAGA (243) are designated as BDA (Amphibious Landing Barges) and are intended for amphibious operations in remote locations.
Both vessels were built in the shipyards of COTECMAR.
