Agnadeen Class AOR (stromboli class)

مشاركة بواسطة hayder » الثلاثاء يناير 15, 2013 3:07 am

the agnadeen oiler and "mother ship" for the Iraqi navy which has been in Egypt since 1990 will finally enter service with the Iraqi navy this year. it has been refitted and modernised.

Notes: As part of a build-up of the fleet, Iraq ordered this near-sister to the Italian navy’s Stromboli class. She has amidships highline stations for stores and fuel, and an astern station for fuel. There is a helipad aft but no hangar.

Agnadeen spent 1984 and 1985 in Italian waters, training the Iraqi crew. In 1986 she docked at Alexandria, Egypt as it was not safe to sail for Iraq with Iranian troops threatening Basra. She has not moved an inch since then.

In 1991, the UN committee in charge of the armistice that ended Desert Storm awarded custody of Agnadeen to Italy. For unclear reasons, the ship was never claimed and remained in Alexandria. In 2005, the Italian navy pledged unspecified “assistance” to the new Iraqi Coastal Defense Force. It is possible that Agnadeen may be returned to Iraqi custody. However, after 20 years motionless with minimal upkeep, the ship is likely in horrible mechanical condition and may not be able to ever sail again regardless.

The vessel itself is an excellent design; however Agnadeen is symbolic of the wastefulness of the Hussein regime. When Agnadeen commissioned, there weren’t any ships in the Iraqi navy even capable of UNREP, and the largest planned future additions were coastal frigates. There was absolutely no need for an oiler of this type. Iraq’s inability to provide air cover for their navy means Agnadeen would have quickly been sunk in any conflict.

If it was returned to the Iraqi navy, how useful would it be?
Iraq is not using any large naval vessels that would need a mothership with this size.

It will arrive in umm qasr "soon". it has been refitted in alexandria.

I don't know what they will use it for to be honest. maybe as a "Mother ship" with helicopters and a marine detachment moored between the Iraqi oil export platforms?

If Iraq joins "peninsular shield" it can support the saudi vessels as part of Iraq's detachment.

Can used as patrol ship, or to remove guns and used as cargo ship!

The Navy could use it as a school ship maybe beside its main role as an oiler?
By the way it took me 10 minutes to figure out the name ! Lol
