The Togolese Navy has taken delivery of a new 33 metre patrol boat from French naval defence equipment manufacturer Raidco Marine to enhance the operational capacity of its small navy.

Last year Togo ordered two RPB 33 patrol boats, originally slated for delivery in March and July this year.

The first vessel left Lorient on April 1 and after stopping in Agadir, Dakar and Abidjan, arrived in the Togolese capital Lome on April 22. On April 25 the vessel (P763) was named Agou by President Faure Gnassingbe, according to the French embassy in Togo.
