Built to replace the elderly DEs of the Van Amstel class, the Van Speijks were an adaptation of the British Leander class. In order to facilitate rapid construction few changes were made in the basic design, and even the armament of the British ships was adopted in its entirely, thus adding the 114mm gun to the 120mm standard in other Netherlands vessels. The stipulation that as much equipment of Netherlands manufacture as possible be incorporated led to a number of changes in other areas, in particular the surveillance radars and fire control systems, which were provided by HSA. The size advantage of the small M44 director provided for Seacat over the British model enabled a second launcher to be worked in on the hangar roof.
Four ships were ordered in 1962, with the other two following in 1964. They were the first Netherlands escorts to operate helicopters, and on completion were quickly integrated into the ASW squadrons alongside the Holland and Friesland classes.
