BAE Eloy Alfaro (FM01)

Chilean frigate Almirante Condell (PFG-06) was a Condell-class frigate of the Chilean Navy, and was the third ship in the Chilean Navy to bear this name. She is a refitted Leander-class frigate ordered by the Chilean government in 1969 as an ASW frigate, together with Almirante Lynch. The class was built between 1969 and 1973, under Chilean modifications at Yarrow Shipbuilders in Scotstoun, Glasgow. The Almirante Condell was delivered to Chile in 1973. She was decommissioned on 11 December 2007. In March 2008, she was sold to Ecuador, along with her sister ship Almirante Lynch, and re-named BAE Eloy Alfaro (FM 01). Both ships were handed over to the Navy of Ecuador on 18 April 2008. (Photo: Armada de Chile)
