The NRP Mondego and crew ended their secondment to Madeira on Friday and have returned to their Lisbon Naval Base.
Taking its place are two naval vessels, the NRP Orion and NRP Hydra.
The NRP Orion (base number P1156) is an updated version of the Argos-class patrol vessel, now known as the Centauro Class. The ship was commissioned into active service in 2001, and should not be confused with the other NRP Orion, P362, that saw active service in Guinea and took part in the Green Sea operation in November 1970.
