Navantia on track for Hobart Class modernisation milestones
Navantia Australia has announced on-time delivery of key milestones for the SEA 4000 Phase 6 Hobart Class Guided Missile Destroyer Combat Systems Modernisation program.
The subsidiary of Spanish state-owned company Navantia, working as platform systems designer on the program, has announced ship design and platform integration of a modernised Aegis Weapon System under Baseline 9, Tomahawk Weapon System and Saab Australian Interface into the Hobart Class Guided Missile Destroyers.
