Description: The TNC 45 is a class of missile boats designed and built by Lurssen Shipyard in Germany to operate in the littoral environment. Lurssen delivered 25 boats to several Navies worldwide in the 1970s and 1980s. These ships have been designed to perform anti-surface warfare (ASuW) utilizing two/four MM38/40 Exocet anti-ship missiles and a 76mm OTO dual-purpose gun. Besides, these ships are fitted with two 7.62mm machine guns and one 40mm anti-aircraft gun. The propulsion system is based on four diesel engines developing 13,000-shp and allowing a top speed in excess of 41 knots. The ship also includes Sea Giraffe 50 air and surface search radar, or an alternative radar, along with fire control system, jammer and chaff dispenser.
