Description: The Brazilian Navy Inhauma is a 2,000t class of multi-purpose corvettes based on a German design and built by Arsenal de Marinha do Rio de Janeiro and Verolme shipyards in the late 1980s. Inhauma-class corvettes are intended primarily to conduct anti-submarine (ASW) and anti-surface warfare (ASuW) missions. Their CODOG (Combined Diesel Or Gas) propulsion system comprises two cruise diesel engines developing 5,800-hp and one LM2500 gas turbine developing 27,500-hp. The Brazilian Navy commissioned four ships between 1989 and 1994.

Inhauma-class corvettes primary sensor is the DSQS-21C hull-mounted sonar. Their weapon systems consists of a Vickers 4.5-inch (115mm) dual purpose gun with a maximum range of 22 km, two Bofors 40mm anti-aircraft guns, four MM40 Exocet anti-ship missiles, and two triple 12.75-inch torpedo launchers for Mark 46 torpedoes. The aft flight deck and hangar enables operations of a single AH-11A Super Lynx helicopter.
