Project history

Stanflex-300 design of multipurpose craft with interchangeable equipment and armament modules for fast attack craft (PM), patrol boat (PT), minesweeper (MSC), minehunter (MHC) and minelayer (ML). There were 3.5x3.0x2.5m modules: 1 fwd and 3 aft. One module may be replaced in 30 minutes. Foam-core GRP hull strengthened with Kevlar panels.

Modernizations

1995-2000, Gribben as survey ship: was disarmed, electronic equipment consisted of Scanter Mil 009 radar

1998, 6 units of PM version (including Ravnen, Skaden, Søløven: + 2 x 3 Sea Sparrow SAM (VLS, 6 RIM-7P)

2000, Ravnen as survey ship: was disarmed, electronic equipment consisted of Scanter Mil 009, Furuno FR-1505DA radars

2002-2004, 6 units of PM version (including Ravnen, Skaden, Søløven: - 2 x 3 Sea Sparrow SAM; + 1 x 12 ESSM SAM (VLS, 12 RIM-162A)

2004-2010, all survived: - Scanter Mil 009 radar, TDS CCS; + Furuno FR-1505DA radar, Albatros e/o system. 9LV Mk 3 CCS

2005, Gribben, Søløven: - TRS-3D radar, gas turbine became non-operational

Naval service

In 2006 4 units were armed as missile boats, 4 as minehunters and 2 as patrols.
