The Romanian government has selected Naval Group and Santierul Naval Constanta (SNC) for the construction of four new Gowind-class multi-mission corvettes.

The vessels will be used in anti-surface warfare (ASuW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW), and anti-air warfare (AAW) missions primarily in the Black Sea region.

Naval Group and SNC will also assist the Romanian Navy in the maintenance of the corvettes and in the incorporation of future upgrades on the vessels.
