New Command for NS Elephant and Activation of Squadrons

24th May 2018 marks another historical day in the Navy when they witness the change of command of NS Elephant when CDR Gabriel Iyambo relieved Capt (N) C Moshoeshoe from his duty. Rear Admiral (JG) AP Amungulu officiated the ceremony. Admiral highlighted that the change of command is a vital part in their quest to build capacity by empowering young officers to exercise command at sea in order to groom and bridge the gap between the veterans and the young. Amungulu encouraged the NS Elephant crew to be proud that they got an outstanding commanding officer.
The incoming commander thanked the navy authority specifically CNO for entrusting him with the important responsibility of command. Cdr Iyambo assured the appointing authority that he will strive to perform his duties to the fullest in order for the unit to contribute to the achievement of the Navy’s overall goals and objectives. “I am aware of the challenges lying ahead, however I am taking up these challenges with the view of turning them into opportunities. These are the opportunities that will allow us to grow, learn and to enhance our naval experiences”. Said CDR Iyambo.
On a different event, the Namibian navy witnessed the first ever activation of squadrons. The change of command and activation of squadrons are long standing traditions within the NDF and the Navy in particular. At the Activation of Squadron, Capt (N) G Pandeni appointed to command Combat Squadron, Capt (N) C Moshoeshoe command Combat Support Squadron, CDR S Kapuire command Coastal Patrol Squadron and Lt (N) K Hainghumbi appointed to command Harbour Patrol Squadron.

The two(ok one seeing that 1 was written off at Grootfontein AFB) Z-9's bought are H425 VIP variant's, though I've seen it pictures of it parked on the NS Elephant's flight deck whilst in port and training with the Marines. Not sure if its "Navalised" thou
