In 2006, Navantia was chosen as the designer of the Royal Australian Navy’s guided missile destroyer (DDG).
Navantia has been working with partner organisations to bring the Australian made Hobart Class destroyers into reality. The three Hobart Class destroyers are based on the Spanish F-100 Frigate design and are currently being built in Adelaide, South Australia. They provide air defence for accompanying ships in addition to supporting land forces and infrastructure in coastal areas. Equipped with modern sonar and communications systems, decoys, surface-launched torpedoes and an array of effective close-in defensive weapons, the Hobart Class destroyers also provide enhanced undersea and task group command capabilities.
