Last month (29/3/21), the Spanish shipbuilder announced the launch of the third of five Avante 2200 corvettes intended for the Royal Saudi Naval Forces (RSNF). The corvette is known as HAIL, and is scheduled to be delivered in 2022.
In 2018, the Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI) and Navantia launched a joint venture (JV) under the name SAMI Navantia Naval Industries (SAMINavantia) to design and construct five Avante 2200 corvettes for the RSNF.
Does the JV include the transfer and localization of technologies used in the production of the Avante 2200 corvettes?
Tactical Report answers this question and more in the following a 499-word report.
