On September 25, the Finnish Ministry of Defense officially announced the launch of Laivue 2020 (“Flotilla 2020 ”), which provides for the purchase of four multi-purpose corvettes to replace four upgraded Rauma missile boats, two Hämeenmaa type mine loaders, and also the Pohjanmaa flagship and a mine loader removed from the Finnish Navy in 2013, reports blog Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies.




Until the end of 2015, the Finnish Defense Ministry will send requests for the creation of a technical project and the subsequent construction of corvettes to the interested shipyards of the country. It is planned that the contractor will be determined at the end of 2016 or the beginning of 2017 of the year. The selected company will have to complete the technical design by 2018 and build ships from 2019 to 2024. The program cost is 1.2 billion euros.

In addition, the Ministry of Defense of Finland distributed a presentation on the program Laivue 2020, which contains an image of the preliminary appearance of a promising corvette. From the presented materials it follows that the length of the ship with the "stealth" architecture will be about 90 m., The displacement is about 1500 tons.

The report notes that it is planned to include “two four-container launchers of the anti-ship missile system (type is undefined, but PUs are similar to RBS-15 Mk 3 or NSM), 32-charging short-range anti-aircraft missile system (supposedly already in service with the Finnish Navy Umkhonto), 76-mm universal artillery installation Oto Melara Super Rapid, anti-submarine torpedo tubes, the ship also reserved a place for the complex amooborony ". The possibility of placing a light helicopter or a drone, anti-mine systems and the use of towed GUS.

        what if they want to join Karelia? Finland itself does not last long. That was part of the Swedish kingdom, then in the Russian Empire.

        Currently, the Finnish fleet is a piece of shame. The flagship is a mine layer, it's funny.
        Sooner or later they had to do the upgrade.

      This type of ship is more likely for the coastal fleet ... and more to maintain its image - AND WE ARE THE SAME MARINE POWER !!!
      "Ponte" and in military matters the same!

    More like fleet reduction laughing make them to replace four upgraded Rauma-type missile boats, two Hämeenmaa-type mine loaders, as well as the Pohjanmaa flagship and a mine loader removed from the Finnish Navy in 2013. Four anti-submarine boats - the Swedes will have another hysteria (in a fit of paranoia), they say these Finns know something. laughing

      They want more to be considered Scandinavians. So they cling to the neighbors, otherwise they look at them with disdain.

    I don’t understand who the Finns are chasing and who are they going to fight with? Or are they trying to scare us? Are these ships to protect fishermen, or what?

    discussion of any news about Finland is ultimately reduced to a flood about her stay in the Republic of Ingushetia. I would not be surprised if they even remember the assault on the M-Ma Line and the Winter Line. Although - what a connection, it would seem ...

    I apologize to the authors of this publication for the question.
    - What informational or popular information did this publication contain?
    As I already asked a similar question, I was answered, almost literally (one of the active "marshals"), but in the official mode, which was supposedly to inform the site users of information about certain news in the field of military policy. But then I have a question. What information did this publication convey to site visitors?

    I apologize to my colleagues. Well, there is no tym ... request request request dissent please apologize! hi

          Forgiven the information, the Finns are going to change outdated and rotten ships to new ones, and without strengthening the fleet. And someone from this concludes that this is dangerous for Russia.
