Can't imagine the Mexican Navy having to be too concerned about aerial threats. Does ESSM have an anti-surface capability?

Mexico previously had 4 Knox frigates and 2 Bronsteins, so while not top of the line, they had seagoing ships armed with missiles.

Actually Mistral is a much lighter system; perhaps ESSM will replace the Execet launchers and upgrade the AA range at the expense decreasing AShM range. Although for Mexico's purposes, eight ESSM is probably a much more effective weapon system then four Exorcet.
