  3. Origin: [Sp.]


  1. Aviso

    An aviso, a kind of dispatch boat or advice boat, survives particularly in the French Navy, equivalent to the modern sloop. The Dictionnaire de la Marine Française 1788 – 1792 describes avisos as "small boats designed to carry orders or advices". French World War I avisos, used also during World War II, had displacement 300-700 tons, speed 13-20 knots, main armament usually of two 100 mm guns, two 138 mm guns or four 100 mm guns. In English they are often referred to as sloops. Colonial avisos, such as the Bougainville-class aviso intended for overseas service, were larger. The Portuguese Navy built avisos to operate in the Portuguese Empire. The Portuguese built 1st Rate avisos of 2,400 tons and 2nd Rate avisos of 1,200 to 1,700 tons. In 1932 the Portuguese Flower-class sloops were also classified as 2nd Rate avisos. Modern avisos have grown to become combat-capable ships, smaller than a corvette but larger than patrol ships. They typically have roles in anti-submarine warfare and coastal defence. In NATO classification they are usually recognized as corvettes.

    La belleza, la fama y el poder tienen su denominador común - todos ellos son volubles. También pueden ser descritos como infiel, frívola y frívolo. Todos ellos le permiten volar alto cuando están con usted, y sin embargo, también le caen de las más grandes alturas sin previo aviso. Que todo el viaje arriba cuando usted menos se lo espere. Tontos están hipnotizados por ellos, mientras que sabia manejarlos inteligentemente manteniendo firmemente sus pies en el suelo. Ser sabio, y no dejarse llevar por la belleza, la fama y el poder.
