Description: The Buque de Vigilancia Litoral (BVL) or Littoral Surveillance Vessel is a four ships class being built by Navantia at its San Fernando-Puerto Real shipyard for the Navy of Venezuela. The lead ship, named Guaicamacuto, was laid down on October 16, 2008. The Guaicamacuto-class ships have been designed to conduct surveillance and protection missions in the littoral environment, sea lanes protection, disaster relief, marine environmental protection, personnel and equipment transportation, search and rescue, divers support, anti-smuggling, anti-surface warfare (ASuW) and electronic warfare (EW) missions. These ships are provided with small and medium-caliber guns and an aft flight deck for operation of a rotary-wing aircraft. On November 28, 2008, Venezuela and Spain signed the procurement contract for four BVL and four POVZEE vessels to be delivered between August 2009 and 2011.
