Story from,-spanish-frigates-sail-to-do-battle-in-australia.html

A major naval battle is brewing Down Under, as two of Western Europe’s most modern surface combatants steam through the Indian Ocean to fight for the next prize offered by the Royal Australian Navy.

At stake is an A$35 billion order for 8 or 9 SEA Future Frigate (FF) to be built in Adelaide, South Australia, under the SEA5000 program. In addition, New Zealand might also join the program at a later stage to replace its own two ANZAC-class frigates, further adding to the stake.

The two ships are the Italian Navy’s Carabiniere (F 593), a recently-commissioned Fregata Europea Multi-Missione (FREMM), and the Spanish Navy frigate Cristobal Colon (F 105), standing in for an upgraded and redesigned version of Navantia’s Álvaro de Bazán F100-class frigate that is still on the drawing board.

Italy and Spain both hope seeing and touching their ships will help Australia decide whether to continue with its primarily Spanish-designed navy, or instead to switch to a more modern French-Italian design, for a new class of frigates which will, in fact, be as large as destroyers.

Thanks Tony and Paul. I have found it is a rare capture - only the third pic of an Italian warship in Australia on the site. The other ship was here in 1988, uploads in 2012.
@Jim. Why would I want to do that?!!!
