They look good in their colour, a bit more green than the RAN Storm Grey.

The Portuguese frigate NRP Alvares Cabral (F 331) steams alongside USS La Salle (AGF 3) as part of a formation of U.S. Navy and other multi-national warships during Majestic Eagle 2004. July 12, 2004.

Really, my copy of Jane's Fighting Ships has her at 115.9 metres in length.

That compares with the Greek Hydra's at 117,5 meters, Turkey's Barabaros class at 116.7 meters and our Anzac's at 118 meters.

Checked on the Portuguese Navy's own website and they say 115.9m
