Spanish shipbuilder Navantia S.A. launched the fifth and last Avante 2200 multi-role corvette for the Royal Saudi Naval Forces (RSNF) on December 4, 2021.

-Establishment of “SAMI-Navantia Naval Industries” joint venture;

-Joint work on Combat System Integration (CSI);

-Launch of HAZEM - the first 100% Saudi naval Combat Management System (CMS);

-On-the-job Training programs.
