Indian naval shipyard Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers (GRSE) has unveiled its design concept for the Brazilian Navy’s Tamandaré-class corvette programme.
The Kolkata-based shipyard has teamed with Israel’s Elbit Systems Ltd for the supply of combat systems and local firm Sinergy Group Corporate (which owns EISA shipyard) to form a consortium for the four-ship Tamandaré project, which has an estimated budget of USD1.6 billion.
GRSE’s offering is a variant of the modified Kamorta-class (Project 28) corvette design previously proposed for the Philippine Navy frigate project. The baseline version is in service with the Indian Navy.
Basic specifications include a length of 109 m, a displacement of 2,800 tonnes, a top speed of 25 kt, and a complement of 136.
