ASW VESSEL “ABU DHABI”

The “Abu Dhabi class” design of the corvette for the United Arab Emirates has been developed from the “Cigala
Fulgosi ”one, on the basis of which four “Comandanti” class vessels were built for the Italian Navy.
This cutting edge ship will mainly carry out patrolling and surveillance activities and may be employed in antisubmarine,
anti-aircraft and surface activities.
It will be able to exchange tactical data in real time with other naval vessels, helicopters and on shore bases and will be able to provide support and shelter for the Emirate Navy helicopters.
In addition to highly flexible operational capabilities, the vessel will also feature high standards of safety and living conditions for the comfort of the crew.
