Three offshore patrol vessels built by BAE that have been languishing at Portsmouth after having been cancelled by their original owners, Trinidad and Tobago, have been sold to Brazil as part of a deal that will see a further five of the class built locally in Brazil.
The deal will cost £120million and the first of the trio will sale for Brazil in June with the others being delivered by 2013.
The first steel for the first of the class was laid down in January with construction of a second to start soon after. The third of the class will be built in Indonesian shipyards with an agreement signed to allow for the transfer of technology from South Korea. The submarines will have a displacement of around 1,400 tons and be armed with eight silos for missiles and torpedoes.
The contract is expected to be the first in a number of such deals as the Indonesian Navy has expressed a desire to operate between 14 and 18 modern submarines in the future, at present the Navy has just two boats, the KRI Cakra and the KRI Nenggala in commission.
