    Background: AT SEA NEAR VALPARAISO, CHILE

    Chile's new warship was en route to the port of Valparaiso on September 10, when a helicopter brought the navy's Commander-in-Chief, Jose Merino, aboard. The ship, was on its way to a re-naming ceremony which will make official the change from "Antrim" to "Almirante Cochrane". The 5,400-ton British destroyer, which took part in the conflict in the Falkland Islands two years ago, was sold to Chile in September 1983. The estimated cost was 5-million pounds sterling. The "Antrim" will considerably increase the Chilean navy's fire power. It is armed with Exocet anti-ship missiles, Seacat close-range anti-aircraft missiles, and a Lynx anti-submarine helicopter. Chile was sympathetic to Britain during the Falklands conflict, and this addition to its navy is likely to anger Argentina.
