Frigate "Virginia Fazan" class FREMM transferred to the Italian Navy

At the shipyard of the company Fincantieri in Muggiano (La Spezia), the Italian Navy of the second frigate FREMM - Virginio Fasan (F-591) - was handed over to the naval ship, according to altair.com.pl December December. "Virginia Pheasant" is the second Italian frigate class FREMM and the first built in the antisubmarine configuration.


The ship is armed with 76-mm guns and anti-submarine missiles Milas, light torpedoes MU-90. Similar weapons will have, in particular, "Carlo Margottini."

Virginio Pheasant joins Carlo Bergamini transferred to Italian the fleet in the middle of the year. Unlike the Virginio Pheasant, the lead ship was built in a multi-purpose version and armed, in particular, with a 127-mm gun mount Otobreda 127/64 LW.

The transfer of Virginia Pheasant to the customer is another important event in stories The FEMM frigate construction programs are the same as the recent start of sea trials for ships of this type of French construction - Normandia (D-651) for the French Navy and the Mohammed VI for the Moroccan Navy. It should be recalled that recently there was a lot of talk about the possibility of selling two FREMM frigates to the naval forces of Peru.

      Fremm, of course, good ships. It’s a pity we don’t sell them yet, but I think it’s only for now

      Scha in 2014 in spring our first beautiful (udk Vladivostok) will be tested, I think we will order something else

        We have our own developments! Our defense industry needs to develop, not Italy to help out! Moreover, their ships will not work for our climate and operational loads!

          Have you just arrived from Mars and you weren’t 20 years old on your native land?

          - Help Italy out? Hmm actually I said that we wanted to order from DCNS

          -Our shipyard is loaded to the eyeballs -Toko so far, it doesn’t really work out with price, quality and terms, and the hand of the USC is changing like gloves.

        Such a thing would be useful to us. An excellent multi-functional ship, suitable for everything from patrolling the coast to escort aircraft carrier formations.

        In terms of technology, we still lagged far behind them, for example, the frigates of similar horizons “Horizon” were finished developing in the mid-90s. Moreover, the same Franco-Italian firms that do Horizons, which are now considered one of the best, if not the best in their class, are engaged in Fremms.

        If they sell, then it’s definitely worth taking. Such an example of technology never hurts.

    The main thing is not what they did, but the main thing is that they would not come across our ships. They have such a chance.

      Well come across? So what? I am also a patriot of my country, but sometimes it’s better not to throw caps, but really take a look at things. A new ship, new weapons are always better than the old ones. And the majority of our fleet (with great respect, because I gave it for almost 15 years) is a ship to put it mildly, not of the first freshness. We must study, actively seek opportunities to touch technology, in the end we must try to build ships ourselves REALLY equal in armament and technology. As long as our fleet manages with very advanced compromises. But this is still a compromise.
      And Italy can be congratulated on another brand new, modern ship

    Russia does not come into contact with the Italian Navy from any side. First, Russia is interested in the Mediterranean Sea insofar as. As an outlet to the Atlantic, the Northern Route is more reliable. And Gibraltar will still block the Britons if that. Secondly, Russia is obliged, first of all, to develop strategic missile submarines - this is a matter of its survival. Of the entire triad, this is the most secretive part, dozens of missile carriers must roam around, keeping their "partners" in good shape. And frigates are toys for cutting the budget, in the World Ocean the chances of finding a submarine from a frigate are about the same as finding a Slavophile in the FRS.

    The highlight of these frigates is an excellent electronic filling to which we did not even get close and a solid displacement. In our country, these frigates would be called destroyers. Thanks to this, you can insert almost any weapon in significant quantities, plus excellent habitability and the possibility of increasing autonomy. If you agree to sell it is necessary to take six pieces.
    And the tales about "we must give work to ours and not to foreigners" is pure nonsense. "Ours" were given work, they spent a huge amount of money, and were given nothing. This zilch can only please patriots and frighten Somali pirates on boats. Everything that goes to Syria and scares the rest is built in the USSR and has no adequate replacement. Well, if only foreigners sell something.

      "And the fairy tales about" we must give work to ours and not to foreigners "is pure nonsense." Ours "were given work, they spent a huge amount of money, but gave out zilch."
      do not exaggerate! ours are different, if the officials = then yes, I agree, they saw through everything ... You must have a desire to have Pu like Stalin's, then you can make it work! and so he gave money and how on the "cockroach" races who will carry away more and faster ...

      Let's first see what we get from France in 2014 - and then we'll talk about "Russian zilch".
