The Rio Damuji-class frigates are the largest warships in the Cuban Navy built from former Spanish fishing trawlers. Built between 1975 and 1979, they are variously classed as frigates, corvettes, or offshore patrol vessels. The ships' armament consists of Styx missile launchers, 25 mm guns, and the turret of a ZSU-57-2. Modifications of the design were delivered to Spain and Egypt.
