U27 Brasil

The U27 training Frigate from Brazil arrived in Baltimore's Inner Harbor recently so I made sure to get down there for a few shots. At 3400 gross tons and 430 feet in length, this ship dominates the seascape. Not sure when this was last here but I do remember missing it in August of 2007. The ship is powered by twin diesels that generate approximately 7000 horsepower, propelling this beast forward at 18 knots. Man, that's mighty impressive. There is also a helipad. I desperately wanted to get onboard for a tour but my time simply would not allow it. In any case, I'm happy for the opportunity to have seen it during this visit.

You've seen the bow above, now let's have a look at the stern.

We'll close out the post with the portside gangplank.
