The Secretary of the Navy explained that it is a surface unit capable of developing operations under the trinomial concept, since it extends its maritime surveillance radius, it can hold a helicopter and a high-speed interceptor craft on its decks, which as a whole allow to reduce operating costs and increase their level of response and effectiveness.
