On September 26, the last remaining gun cruiser in active service, BAP Almirante Grau was decomissioned. She will be replaced as Peru's flagship with the frigate Montero. Before her service in the Peruvian navy, she was known as HNLMS De Ruyter, comissioned in 1953.

Well that's sad. Peru was the nation with the last all gun cruiser in service left in the world.

 

With her decommissioning, the end of an era has arrived.

Hey, @Lert; I just got an idea for a brand new premium ship!

I've suggested her many times.

Also, this news makes me sad. There's very little hope the ship will survive as a museum ship. She'll probably be scrapped. End of an era indeed.

Ya, it really is the end of an era; and one people remember longingly, and with fondness.
