      But they are not afraid of us and they are buying these boats, this is clearly against Iran’s “mosquito fleet” ...

          No, this is an attempt to become a GREAT "regional" power.
          Only nothing good will come of them. Alas, but not Saudi wars, not wars. They forgot how to fight themselves, more became merchants.

    The Saudis have too much money! Therefore, all their weapons purchases are like purchases for 3-year-old majors of elite Barbie dolls and toy models - Ferrari, but who have nothing to do with improving the defense ability or protecting the country from an external probable aggressor ... However, money was invented so that to spend them, especially when it’s already spent and especially nothing ....! This is not in the Arctic, Transbaikalia, the Far East or Siberia ..., at the same time they are engaged in the life support of the people .... Here are the sheikhs and they are casting out, who is so happy! laughing

    “The HSI 32 patrol boats developed by CMN have an all-aluminum construction with a total displacement of 132 tons

    hi The French shipyard CMN told NavyRecognition that the first HSI32 boat built for the Mozambique Navy achieved an impressive speed of 47 knots during its initial sea trials. HSI 32 subsequently reached a maximum speed of 53 knots
