    Poland to build multi-mission ‘Miecznik’ frigates

    Poland is going to build 3 Arrowhead 140PL multi-mission ‘Miecznik’ frigates. It will be the largest procurement deal in the history of the Polish Navy. Construction of the first Polish multi-mission ‘Miecznik’ frigates will begin in August next year. The consortium responsible for the largest naval modernisation programme of the Polish Army declares that three ships of this type will be delivered to the navy in 2028, 2029 and 2031.

    The programme for the construction of three coastal defence ships of the multi-missile ‘Miecznik’ frigate, is currently the most important naval modernisation programme. As announced, they are to combat enemy surface and submarine vessels, all types of aircraft (drones, aircraft and helicopters) and, to a limited extent, ground targets. (pgzsw.com.pl)

As Marcin Ryngwelski, president of Remontowa Shipbuilding, explained, two sections of the ship (each about 40m long) will be built at each shipyard participating in the programme, and their joining will take place at the PGZ Naval Shipyard.
