Project history

Baptista de Andrade class utilized the same hull and machinery as the João Coutinho, but had a more sophistical armament and sensors. They had a helicopter platform but no hangar and landing aid equipment. Very poor armament and equipment dictated employment of these ships only in patrol and fisheries protection roles.
