“Astice” and “Porpora”

Astice A5379, Porpora A5382, Porto Mediceo, Livorno
“Astice” (A5379), “Porpora” (A5382): these two minesweepers of the Aragosta (Lobster) class are actually used as training ships. Far away, we can see the church of San Ferdinando.

I hope the ships will always be for training and not for real mines.
