I saw this corvette under construction at Vosper Thornycroft's in Portsmouth

http://www.shipspotting.com/modules/myalbum/photo-1109283-AL+SHAMIKH

They are building three corvettes for the Oman Navy and I assume this is the first of the series AL SHANIKH (Q40), can anyone confirm this?

Regards

Bob

Hi Bob,

You are correct in your assumption. By the way Vosper Thornycroft no longer exist. We are now Bae Systems.
