COTECMAR completes first of four LPR-40 river patrol boats

28 August 2013

COTECMAR has finished construction of the first of four LPR-40 armoured river patrol boats ordered by Brazil, IHS Jane's understands from pictures released by the Colombian shipyard in late August.

The LPR-40 was developed by COTECMAR from the Tenerife-class PBR built by Bender Shipbuilding. It is fully armoured, displaces 13.5 tonnes and can be transported by a C-130 Hercules transport aircraft. Equipped with two waterjets, the LPR-40 is tailored for shallow-water operations in the Amazonian region. While it can be armed with a remotely operated 40 mm grenade launcher, the first Brazil-bound LPR-40 is only armed with four .50 cal weapons stations.
