State of the art hull lines based on stealth shape requirements. For ship’s resistance reduction a bulbous bow is incorporated. Particular attention is paid to the design of the aft end lines to achieve smooth inflow to the propellers, to reduce propeller induced vibration and to optimize propulsive efficiency.
Main hull: High tensile steel
Superstructure : Steel or Aluminum
Germanischer Lloyd Rules for Classification and Construction.
For cost reduction commercial standards throughout, except in the areas where naval standards are considered necessary for safety, survivability and operability reasons (shock requirements, NBC Citadel, etc.) can also be used.
Optimized radar signature by using the shaped hull form (Stealth design). For reduction of the Infra-red (IR) signature an injection system for cooling of the exhaust gases of the propulsion engines and a spraying system for pre-wetting of the outside areas in case of NBC condition are provided.
Reduced acoustic signature by flexible couplings and resilient mountings.
Integrated monitoring and control system (IMCS)
Τwo balanced rudders For improved maneuverability.
One pair of non - retractable fin stabilizers for comfortable and safe sea keeping characteristics as an option.
2 x 7.24 m military RIBs
1 x 400 kW bow thruster
The vessel has sufficient displacement and endurance combined with operational capabilities to cope with all assumed types of threats within the specific mission area.
The Corvette is suitable for operations in littoral waters and in open ocean under harsh weather conditions.
The vessel has strong self defence capability against any type of air threats like missiles, aircrafts helicopters, UAVs.
The Corvette is based on a balance of mission payload, capacity, manoeuvrability, signature reduction and survivability to ensure tactical superiority.
Optimum relationship between price and performance is achieved with the proper combination of commercial and naval standards.
A flexible and reliable basic platform in which the desired level of equipment and armament is accommodated in such a way that an optimum relation of accommodated systems and equipment to vessel’s size is achieved.The flexibility of the design enables the final product to be customized to the Customers’ requirements.
