8:17:00 PM
BOGOTA, -- The Colombian Navy (ARC) received three vessels from South Korea in late July as part of its 'Plan Orion 2' naval expansion scheme that aims to significantly increase patrol capabilities by 2030.

The first was the 1,723-ton ARC Nariño , the former Republic of Korea Navy (ROKN) Donghae-class guided missile corvette ROKS Anyang (PCC 755) that was retired from service in September 2011.

Nariño was delivered to the ARC on 30 July and will be based at the Malaga naval base on the Pacific coast once it arrives in Colombia, according to a communiqué from the Colombian Embassy in Seoul.
