DCNS on Friday delivered the FREMM multi-mission frigate Provence to the French Navy, as stipulated in the contract.
The frigate is the second of the series ordered by OCCAR, Organization of Joint Armament that performs the project management for the multi-mission frigates intended for France and Italy.
OCCAR ordered it on behalf of the DGA (French armament procurement agency), the company announced.
The delivery of the second series to the French Navy took place just a few weeks after the first successful firing in Europe of a naval cruise missile from the first-of-class, the FREMM Aquitaine.
The FREMM multi-mission frigate is one of the technologically advanced and competitive ships on the market. Its versatility and manoeuvrability meet the operational requirements of numerous navies around the world.
Equipped with high-tech sensors and weapons, integrated with the SETIS latest-generation combat system developed by DCNS, the frigate can counter all types of threats, whether air, surface, submarine or land-based.
The heavily armed FREMM is equipped with the effective weapons systems and equipment, such as the Herakles multifunction radar, the Aster and Exocet MM 40 missiles, or the MU 90 torpedoes.
