Bahrain’s patrol warship RBNS Al Zubara has sailed from the port of Falmouth in the United Kingdom to begin its journey to the Kingdom, passing through several ports.
A farewell ceremony was held for her and Her Majesty’s ship Tamar accompanied it to the borders of British territorial waters.
Al Zubara is one of the modern and developed patrol vessels of the “OPV” type manufactured by the prestigious “BAE Systems” company. It can conduct remote coastal patrol thanks to its ability to stay for long times and in various weather conditions at sea.
Al Zubara is sailing with experienced Bahraini crewmembers who have been trained to carry out the mission of the journey home efficiently and competently.
The vessel possesses capabilities that use modern technology in the management, operation and control of its system, including the navigation and communication system, the engine and generator operating and control system, the fire control system, damage control and a combat system.
The design and engineering of the vessel provide it with strength and durability to operate in the worst weather conditions and during long journeys as it is supported by a helipad capable of receiving various helicopters of various weights.
