Notes: A Rockwell Sabreliner was replaced in 1999 by a Learjet 31A and a Learjet 60 for the VIP role. Contrary to various reports, Mi-24/35 Hind attack helicopters are NOT used by the Mexican Navy. The first Rotor Way Exec 162F helicopter was written off in an accident on 11 December 2000. Six more Lancair IV-P/Super ES kits have been purchased for local assembly, possibly to replace the Maule trainers. Acquisition of 3 Lockheed P-3B Orion and SH-2G/F Seasprite helicopters was cancelled in May 2002 From about 8 Panthers AMPH-150 were deliverd to the UMS navy a while back this gives you pictures, You may not need to know spanish to understand This has pictures of land viechals that the navy owns, once agian very very little spanish is needed This is about the Mexican Marines some spanish is needed but there are nice pictures and easy to navagiate Have fun

Wonder who is sleeping in my rack? Served 72-74 on the ARM "BRAVO" when she was the USS McCloy.

here are some pictures of your "Old Friend"

"To the Escpade Pod!

Yes, that is her.  She used to chase russian subs in the North Atlantic in the "good old days". 
Glad to see she is sailing warmer waters in retirement. 
You can see her records under USS McCloy DE-1038 (later FF-1038). 
In early 1973 while I was aboard, she got converted to a "research" vessel with several new experimental systems, like SATCOM and ITASS.  She is also known for an incident where a soviet Victor-III class ran into the ITASS she was towing off Bermuda in 1983. That was 9 years after I left the USN, so they couldn't blame me.
Any other pictures or links would be great.
Might also mention that ship produce 2 4 star admirals (including a CNO) as well as a 3 star admiral.

My Dad served on the P-104 Doblado when the ship was known as the USS Defense in WW-II.
I am trying to find out if she is still in service for the Mexican Navy. Seeing her on the list was very encouraging.
