The United States has handed over a third Defender inshore patrol boat and an associated maintenance facility to Togo's Navy, the Togolese Armed Forces (FAT) announced on 3 July.

There have been numerous pirate incidents off Togo in recent years, but foreign assistance is helping to build up the West African country's ability to police its waters. The US supplied the FAT's first two Defenders in 2010, while the French company Raidco Marine will deliver the second of the two 33 m RPB 33 patrol boats it has ordered.

The French embassy in Togo announced in May that the first RPB 33 arrived in Lomé on 22 April and was named Agou (P 763).
