Rio Ucayali Class Sloop

(Historical data)

Design work on sloops has been underway for the better part of two years, as Peru grapples with the need to police its rich fisheries and patrol its lengthy shoreline without diverting its relatively small quantity of destroyers and torpedo-boats to such roles.

The Rio class sloops were to undertake this role for the Marina, and are instead expected to do so as the core of a new Coast Guard. The class is sufficiently armed to function as an escort along the coast, but also has boats and extra accommodation to allow for prolonged fisheries inspection duties.

Rio Putumayo, laid down 1942
