History

Lieutenant Colonel Errhamani (F 501) is a Descubierta-class corvette of the Royal Moroccan Navy. The class itself is Spanish in origin, dating to the mid 1970s, but Errhamani was purpose built for Morocco. She carries Exocet missiles in place of the Harpoons of the rest of the class, and is equipped with Aspide surface-to-air missiles, a 76mm gun, a pair of 40mm/L70 Bofors guns, two triple torpedo tubes, and an ASROC launcher. Errhamani was commissioned in 1983, and is still in service after undergoing modernization in 2014. She can make 25 knots and has a crew of 118.
