Defence and security company Saab unveiled the next generation corvette ships at the IMDEX Asia 2017 international martime defence exhibition and conference, at the Changi Exhibition Centre, Singapore.

The new Saab’s next generation Corvette is a hybrid design with a reinforced steel hull, combined with a lightweight composite superstructure, enhances performance and reduces life-cycle cost. The well-balanced design makes the ships robust and affordable with unparallelled flexibility to handle multiple roles. Experience and solutions from numerous ship projects are contributing to the next generation Corvette design ensuring low project risks.

Technologies, solutions and experience gained from the Visby corvettes and other vessels have been used to develop Saab’s next generation Corvette ships with lengths ranging from 70 to 110 metres. The ships are flexible and multi-mission capable and can be used on a broad spectrum of missions. These include surface combat, anti-submarine warfare (ASW), air defence and patrol.
