Plasan starts to make armour for RN Type 26 frigates

5th August 2020 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Plasan has begun production of armour for the UK RN’s Type 26 City-class ASW frigates, about two years later than originally scheduled.

UK shipbuilder BAE Systems signed a contract worth an undisclosed amount with Plasan in February 2018.

The Israeli company has developed a range of NATO STANAG 4569-compliant vessel armour systems in recent years, reaching Technology Readiness Level 7-8.

The first Type 26 frigate (HMS Glasgow) is scheduled to begin sea trials in or after 2025.

Plasan also developed, designed and delivered three unique armour shipsets to the USN for installation on Zumwalt-class DDG-1000 guided missile destroyers.
