MBDA Italia announced it has been awarded by the Qatar Emiri Naval Force (QENF) a contract to supply operational capabilities for four multi-role corvettes, one landing platform dock (LPD) and two patrol vessels.

The programme will include training, test stations and maintenance facilities as well as integrated logistical support. The award to MBDA Italia is within the framework of a Government to Government agreement signed in Rome by Roberta Pinotti and Khalid Bin Muhammad Al-Attiyah on behalf of Italian and Qatari governments respectively.

Fincantieri and Leonardo-Finmeccanica are responsible to deliver the seven surface ships to Qatar.
