Germany and the Netherlands signed an agreement on December 17th to jointly work on a next generation frigate which will replace the German Navy Sachsen-class (F124) and the Royal Netherlands Navy De Zeven Provinciën-class (LCF) frigates.

Dutch State Secretary Barbara Visser and her German counterpart Benedikt Zimmer signed the agreement via visio conference.

“Both countries will collaborate in the field of research and development and acquisition, among other things. The countries are working on equal operational requirements”, stated Dutch MoD. Barbara Visser added that “It is also the intention that the industries of our countries will benefit optimally from this.”
