We signed the acceptance of the Frigates in motive of the 200th anniversary of our independence. As our crews have completed their basic training.

We have also bought 4 AB412 ASW for the Frigates and we fitted them with RHIBs.
The Frigates are going to be renamed Freedom (31) and Independence (32) and are the most powerful vessels of our Navy.
