These four units will be the 13th through 16th PKX-Bs that HHIC will build for the South Korean Navy. The first vessel in the class entered service in October 2017 while the second through fourth units are to be delivered before the end of this year.

Delivery of the 13th through 16th PKX-Bs is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
