The UK MoD has revealed scant details about the future Type 32 frigate.
Saab to modernise German F123 frigates
German defence procurement agency BAAINBw has awarded Saab a contract for the delivery and integration of new naval radars and fire control directors onto the country’s Brandenburg-class frigates.
The order worth approximately 4.6 billion SEK ($537 million) will see deliveries and other services take place between 2021 and 2030.
Saab president and CEO Micael Johansson said: ‘We are proud that Germany has selected Saab as the combat system provider and integrator for the frigates to be overhauled.
‘We look forward to contributing to strengthening Germany’s domestic combat systems integration capability, creating a high proportion of value and service provision in Germany.’
Johansson added the contract would strengthen the relationship between Saab and the German military.
