The Squadron 2020 project aims to decommission and replace seven of the existing Finnish naval fleet with modern corvette vessels. The new vessels will serve as an integral part of the maritime defence for Finland and will be operate into the year 2050.
The fleet of Corvettes will feature the ability to repel and deter other ships and vessels, lay maritime mines, engage in anti-submarine warfare, repel aerial vehicles, provide fire support against land-based targets, command naval operations, and operate at sea throughout the year – regardless of difficult weather or ice.
