Lithuanian P15 delivered by Denmark
Denmark has transferred patrol ship P15 to the Lithuanian Navy at a ceremony at Korsør Port in Denmark, the Lithuanian government announced on 24 November.
The new ship will replace Storm-class LNS Sėlis (P32) - currently serving in the Patrol Ships Division of the Lithuanian Navy - from January 2017.
The Flyvefisken-class vessel was delivered to Lithuania under an agreement signed by the Lithuanian armed forces and the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization in September 2016. The package included the P15 vessel and two anti-submarine detection sonar systems for patrol ships.
The P15 is the fourth ship of class. The first three ships, Žemaitis (P11), Dzūkas (P12) and Aukštaitis (P14), began service in the Lithuanian Navy in 2008-2010.
The Patrol Ships Division of the Lithuanian Navy is responsible for patrolling territorial waters and exclusive economic zones, along with convoy and search and rescue operations.
