The U27 training Frigate from Brazil arrived in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor recently so I made sure to get down there for a few shots. At 3400 gross tons and 430 feet in length, this ship dominates the seascape. Not sure when this was last here but I do remember missing it in August of 2007.

The ship is powered by twin diesels that generate approximately 7000 horsepower, propelling this beast forward at 18 knots. Man, that’s mighty impressive. There is also a helipad. I desperately wanted to get onboard for a tour but my time simply would not allow it. In any case, I’m happy for the opportunity to have seen it during this visit.

You’ve seen the bow above, now let’s have a look at the stern.

We’ll close out the post with the portside gangplank.

Catch up with you all soon and thank so much for visiting!

    Great shots Jimi. Come to think of it.. I’ve never been really close to a war ship – well, one that was actually sea worthy. Love the first shot.

    Love the POV in the first image – great diagonal lines and an aggressive prow – all adds up to a photographic statement of ‘don’t mess with me’. Well captured

    I guess my comment didn’t post. I am too lazy to re-write it! Basically it said the US Destroyers I served on were monsters compared to this. Awesome thots though!!

      Sorry about your comment, bud. Didn’t see it in the spammer, must have been a glitch of some sort.

      Oh yes, I’ve seen some of those monster ships coming out of Norfolk (from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge & Tunnel) and it’s an awesome site. Thanks for reposting. :-)
