At Seafuture 2023, Fincantieri presented its FCX Naval Ships Series and provided further details about the FCX30 design.

Unveiled for the first time at Euronaval 2022, the FCX family encompasses five ship classes ranging from a 700t fast patrol vessel (FCX07) to a 4300t light frigate design (FCX40).
