How can you know this is part of the brazilian navy if they are in Callao´s Harbor?

I didn't. Not sure why I said Brazillian back then. I may have posted it incorrectly as in Brazil and later fixed the location but not the title. I actually don't have any idea as to which nationality the ships are. Given the way the ships are in the vicinity are docked though I'd guess they are local, not visiting.

Ok, now I see. I live in Lima and never hear about brazilian´s navy in Callao´s Harbor that´s why I ask. I just discover Google Earth and this website so I´m new in all of this. Let´s keep seeking around...
