Launch of the first Italian frigate of the type FREMM

11
On May 29, 2013, in La Spezia, at the shipyard Muggiano of the Italian shipbuilding association Fincantieri, an official ceremony was held for the introduction of the Italian Navy upon completion of all tests of frigate F 590 Carlo Bergamini, the first frigate of the Italian-built FREMM program. The actual construction of the ship, like all subsequent FREMM frigates for the Italian fleet, was carried out by the association of Fincantieri at the Riva Trigoso shipyard (Genoa). F 590 Carlo Bergamini was laid there on January 7, 2008, launched on July 16-19, 2011 and put to sea trials on October 6, 2011. At the Muggiano shipyard, the ship underwent the last revisions before surrendering to the fleet.


In total, the Italian Navy plans to acquire 10 frigates of the FREMM type, of which four in the ASW variant and six in the multipurpose GP / LA variant. Head F 590 Carlo Bergamini was built in a multipurpose version. The second Italian frigate of this type, the F 591 Virginio Fazan, was built in anti-submarine version, launched on March 31 2012 of the year, is currently undergoing tests and is expected to be commissioned to the Italian fleet later on in 2013. Currently in Riva Trigoso, there are three more anti-submarine frigates in construction (F 592 Carlo Margottini, F 593 Carabiniere and F 594 Alpino) and one in a multi-purpose version (F 595 Luigi Rizzo, 5 was laid in March 2013 of the year).

    And why the Italians fleet? Though crack, but I can’t come up with a reason why they might need it ...

      It happened historically. Before the defeat in the Second World War, Italy had one of the strongest fleets in the world and today is one of the leaders. The country is predominantly washed by the seas, and so the priority is not in the army, but in the fleet.

    this is how to say why Russia needs a fleet in the black sea, each country with a border with the sea needs a fleet to protect its territories and not only geopolitics and many reasons

    Actively building hi I believe that the linearity of our domestic frigates of projects 11356R / M and 22350 will be built on time and will be no worse in quality, combat characteristics and design. yes Our plans are to have six frigates 11356, one 22350 and 3 to 5 corvettes of projects 20385, plus six pl 636.3 and so far only one landing ship 11711 on the Black Sea (base of Novorossiysk). angry Moreover, these are not just big words in the direction of our likely friends, but real warships that are on the berths, so far let not all those contracted are still under construction.

      Equipment and armament specific to French ships

      Thales Artemis infrared monitoring and tracking system
      Radar Terma Scanter 2001 [5]
      Sagem Najir 76-mm gun control system
      Héraklès three-axis multi-function S-band radar with a range of 250 km;
      BIOS SETIS
      PU Interference Director NGDS
      Two Nexter 20mm
      Missiles MM-40 Exocet block 3 for firing but on surface and ground targets;
      Two additional Sylver A70 UVP modules for 16 SCALP Naval cruise missiles with a range of up to 1000 km;
      Samahé helicopter landing system.

      These boats are being built for the French Navy, but Tactical strike weapons: as many as 16 missiles + 8 Exocet, and our frigates have 22350 16 modules, which include anti-ship missiles and caliber for ground targets. As a result, the French get 8 more missiles!
      Correct if not right.

    If everything is "in chocolate", then our "Admiral Gorshkov" in its performance characteristics will be much better than the Italian. And the displacement and the price is less. The main thing is not to ruin.
