The Stanflex 3000 class (sometimes referred as Stanflex 2000) are large patrol vessels for fishery protection and support to local authorities mainly at Greenland and the Faroe Islands. Their hull is strengthened to enable them to penetrate 1m-thick ice. Plans to arm these ships with Harpoon and Sea Sparrow vertical launch systems were abandoned due lack of funds
