Holzinger class patrol vessels are offshore patrol vessels in use by the Mexican Navy. They are a Mexican design, based on the Uribe class bought to the Spanish Naval Company Empresa Nacional Bazán in 1982. Holzinger class patrol vessels have a smaller helicopter deck than the Uribe class and have main armaments (2 twin US MK1 Bofors 40 mm AA mount) at A position. They are able to operate on board helicopters (MBB Bo 105).
Uribe class ships were the first medium size vessels built by Mexican Navy. Two first hulls were built at Tampico Naval Shipyard (Tamaulipas); the second two hulls were built at Salina Cruz Naval Shipyard (Oaxaca).
