I use to see them next to Little Creek Amphib. base in Virginia Beach. There aren't there anymore. Not sure what happened to them.

I am not so sure but I am under the impression that the Greek (Hellenic) Navy currently uses four of them as patrol boats.( P196 Andromeda, P198 Kyknos, P199 Pegasus, P288 Toxotis).

@ Spiros:

Not sure of the current inventory, but you are right about P198.
