ARM Durango (PO-151) is a Durango-class patrol vessel in the Mexican Navy with a main 57 mm gun turret and a helicopter landing pad, currently primarily used to fight drug cartels. It is also armed with SA-18 Grouse missiles. Like other ships of this class, it was designed and built in Mexican dockyards, and is sometimes referred to as a compact frigate. It was named after the Mexican state of Durango

Drug Interception

On December 6, 2009, ARM Durango, in a joint operation with a United States Coast Guard ship, intercepted four boats 55 nautical miles (102 km) from the Guatemalan - Mexico border in the Pacific. Twenty packages of cocaine with the weight of 262 kilograms (578 lb) were seized and nine men were detained.
