BAP Amazonas (CF-11)

Short history
North American shipyards Electric Boat Co. (now part of General Dynamics) built in 1934 two river gunboats (Ca & # 241; onera Fluvial) for Peru. However, the company's website is silent about the construction of these ships. Cannon boats were used in the Peruvian Navy (Marina de Guerra del Peru) for patrol service as well as for police and combat operations. They took part in border skirmishes and wars that led Peru with troubled elements and neighboring states. For example, during their 70 years of military service, these ships took part in three border wars with Ecuador.
