Project history

Lengthened version of Osprey 55 design licensed from Frederikshavn Vaerft, Denmark. Original order for two units (with an option for two more) placed in 1988. It was intended to arm them with four Harpoon SSM, a twin Bofors mount plus associated radars. Only two boats were built, the further ten projected vessels were cancelled in favour of the locally-designed 'P 100' class.

Modernizations

1994, both: + 1 x 1 - 76/62 OTO-Melara Compact, Triton-G, RTN-10X radars
