The program has however been badly delayed, leading to the procurement of 5 more K130 corvettes as a stopgap (despite their designation, basically oversized FACs):

With this kind of money on the line I would have been very surprised if there hadn't been a lawsuit.

Seems as though they're on course for the Australian model, or something close to it, if all 3 major builders end up together.

Looking at newly released renderings from the Damen Group, my original drawing was off in virtually all proportions. Moved things around a bit, deleted bow sonar and torpedoes (apparently dropped from requirements; they seem to like the F125 so much they want to repeat it...)

"Displacement: maximum 9,000 tonnes"

"Displacement: Maximum"?!? I'd guess they're trying to say Deep/Full Load, but you'd sort of hope Naval News would use standard terminology.
