Another AEGIS but which one?

AEGIS .......... + MARSDEN.JPG
This is another AEGIS vessel, believed to be another Santa Fe class from AESA, Spain, but which one?? Tug in this case is the MARSDEN. Converting her name does not help. First part is AIGIS which is recorded as AEGIS in Lloyds. The second part of her name converting the letters to English works out as MPALTIK, which makes no sense at all. There were at least 20 vessels in this class ending with 'IC' and four ending in 'TIC'. MAJESTIC, MYSTIC, PRACTIC and BALTIC. If the first letter is an 'M' that narrows it down to MAJESTIC or MYSTIC neither of which fit. Any thoughts, Gentlemen.
