The red circles mark the danger zones for objects that rotate, guns, radars, etc.

Sorry I meant what are those boxes for? (either side of VLS cells). They don't appear on our Valour frigates.

maybe its the WASS/Finmeccanica MORPHEUS acoustic countermeasures launching systems

Image

the countermeasure launching system, supplied by WASS in surface version (C310) is formed by a launching network with 8 or 12 barrels. The system assures the ejection at suitable distance of countermeasures that can both represent dummy mobile targets (MTE) and generate disturbance noise for the acoustic head of the enemy torpedo ( Jammers ).

The combination of mobile Decoys and Jammers has the purpose of cheating the torpedo, which directs its attacks towards the dummy targets, thus allowing the ship to perform an evasive countermeasure.

North Africa is a vastly different environment in terms of defence requirements. There's simply no way SA could justify having an air force like Egypt or a navy like Algeria.
