Greece’s Ministry of National Defence has entered into a memorandum of understanding with French companies Naval Group and MBDA to open negotiations for the supply of three new frigates and associated equipment for the Hellenic Navy.

The frigates will be built at Naval Group’s shipyard in Lorient. This agreement will make Greece the first export customer for the FDI frigates, five examples of which will also be built for the French Navy.

The MOU also includes an option for Greece to acquire a fourth frigate of the same class.
