Greece Wants to Procure Belharra

Greece Wants to Procure Belharra 27 July, 2019

France and Greece are actively working on a Government-to-Government agreement for the procurement of two Belharra frigates for the Hellenic Navy. Laurent Mourre, Vice President of Sales for Europe and North America, explained that Greece is “very interested” in the Belharra. In January 2009, Greece announced the beginning of exclusive talks with France for the potential procurement of 6 multi-missions frigates. This contract never came into effect because of the economic crisis that struck Greece shortly after.

The Belharra will have a displacement of about 4200 tonnes with a crew of 125 sailors. It will be capable of anti-submarine warfare, anti-air warfare, anti-surface warfare as well as the support of special forces missions.
