ARA Rosales (P-42) is the second ship of the MEKO 140A16 Espora class of six corvettes built for the Argentine Navy. The ship was officially delivered to the Navy on 14 November 1986 and formally commissioned on 24 March 1987.

The Espora-class corvettes are six warships of the Argentine Navy built in Argentina to the German MEKO 140A16 design, this in turn being based on the Portuguese João Coutinho-class project.

They are armed with four MM38 Exocet anti-ship missiles, 76 mm/62 OTO Melara dual purpose gun, two DARDO twin 40 mm AA guns, two .50 cal machine guns, and two triple 324 mm ILAS-3 tubes.

ARA Ciudad de Rosario (Q-62) is a multi-purpose auxiliary ship of the Argentine Navy based at Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires. It was formerly USCGC Red Wood (WLM-685).

The auxiliary ship has a length of 49.05 m (160 ft 11 in), a beam of 10 m (32 ft 10 in), and a draft of 2 m (6 ft 7 in). She can reach a top speed of 12.6 knots (23.3 km/h; 14.5 mph).
