Brazilian Navy Purchasing French LPD, ex FS Siroco

The Brazilian Navy will commission the French Foudre-class FS Siroco (L 9012) landing platform dock (LPD) by 31 December, the service told IHS Jane's on 18 November.

The exact date for commissioning is yet to be finalised, the service added, but necessary documentation for the ship's transfer of property is expected to be signed by 31 December.
