Finland will buy large corvettes

Finnish chief of defense general Jarmo Lindberg to Defense News:

[In] the defense report that was finalized in June last year, the government stated that they are willing to fund strategic procurement programs first to the Navy, where six ships are going away, and they’re going to be replaced by four multipurpose corvettes of about 100 meters. And the anticipated cost of that is €1.2 billion.

As I wrote the other day, ocean capable corvettes are a very interesting class of ships.
