Guided-Missile Destroyer Fridtjof Nansen class

Officially designated as Frigates, this 5500 tn air defence ships are a derivative of the Spanish Alvaro de Bazan class and are equipped with the american Aegis combat system. Their first deployments were carried out without a permanently stationed helicopter due delays in the delivery of their new NH90 NFHs.
