"Meteoro" is the fourth ship with that name in the Spanish Navy. The first three vessels were: a gunboat with base in Antilles; an auxiliary cruiser which fought in the 1898 U.S. � Spanish War; and a torpedo boat, later converted into an anti-submarine frigate.

The crew consists of 46 people: 6 officers, 10 NCOs and 30 seamen and ratings. All of them have been trained in different naval schools and academies: Marín, San Fernando and Ferrol.

The ship is currently carrying out different trials: operational assessment of all her systems and equipment; personnel qualification; and an endurance cruise.

In her short life, the "Meteoro" has participated in Naval Presence missions and also representing the Spanish Navy.
