Press Releases 2017
The Squadron 2020 publication is now also available in English
The Squadron 2020 publication describes the role of maritime defence as a part of the defence system and outlines how the Navy’s capabilities are to be maintained in the 2020s. While it gives grounds for procuring four multi-role corvettes to maintain the Navy’s capabilities it also discusses the procurement from the perspective of security of supply chain.
The Ministry of Defence was in charge of preparing the publication which is based on the results of long-term research and planning by different organisations
and on information gathering and planning of the project group.
