For a exhibition to the public even that are to much!!!! [linked image]


@Nutuk

They are 7 boats, number 5 is ready long time ago but was not Commissioned because of Exocet MM40 Block III late delivering and system and craft check up from builders before handing over. After comes the disagreement with Vosper Thornycroft and now stop everything, delivery from craft 5 and contraction of the 6 & 7 boats. At least they have to found a fast solution to take P-71 Ritsos.

Elefsis Industrial Enterprises SA has been awarded the contract for the supply of three Super Vita 62m fast attack missile craft for the Hellenic Navy. The ships, called the 'Roussen Class', are being constructed at the Elefsis yard near Athens. Vosper Thornycroft provides design, construction support, ship's equipment and logistic support services to Elefsis. The initial requirement is for three fast attack craft and part of the agreement includes provision of two ex-Royal Navy Hunt Class mine countermeasure vessels.

The fast attack craft has a displacement of 580t fully loaded. The first ship, HS Roussen (P67), was launched in November 2002 and was commissioned in December 2005.

The second, HS Daniolos (P68) was launched in July 2003 and commissioned in February 2006. The third, HS Kristallidis (P69), was launched in April 2004 and commissioned in May 2006.

In September 2003, a contract was awarded for a further two ships, HS Grigoropoulos and HS Ritsos, to be built by Elefsis. HS Ritsos was launched in October 2006. Both vessels were commissioned in 2007. A contract from the Hellenic Navy for an additional two vessels, to bring the total to seven, was placed in September 2008.

Jane's Navy International

Non-payment leads BAE to terminate Elefsis fast strike craft deal

Richard Scott

BAE Systems Surface Ships has pulled out of a fast strike craft contract with Elefsis Shipyards, citing continued non-payment from the Greek shipbuilding and shiprepair group.

What was VT Shipbuilding International (now subsumed in BAE Systems Surface Ships) signed a contract with the Neorion-owned Elefsis Shipyards in January 2000 as design authority and principal subcontractor for the design, in-country build and integration of an initial three 62 m Roussen-class fast strike craft for the Hellenic Navy. The original GBP175 million deal covered design services, materiel procurement and combat system integration services, plus a parallel programme of technology transfer and facilities development.

Options were subsequently exercised in 2003 (two ships) and 2008 (two ships) for follow-on craft, bringing total class offtake up to seven. However, only the first four vessels have so far been delivered to the Hellenic Navy; the fifth was launched in 2006 but has remained alongside, pending the reinstatement of equipments removed by Hellenic Navy in August 2009 to support standard repairs and maintenance of the in-service vessels. The final pair remain in the assembly hall at Elefsis Shipyards.

In a 3 March statement to Jane's , BAE Systems said it "had been forced to terminate its agreements with its industrial partner in Greece, Elefsis, to deliver a series of fast attack craft to the Hellenic Navy.

"The regrettable decision results from continued non-payment of monies owed against its contracts, despite a prolonged period of working closely with Elefsis to help resolve its business issues."

It is understood that payments to BAE Systems have been outstanding for over a year, with the arrears now amounting to EUR27 million. A revised payment schedule had been agreed between the two companies in mid-2010, but BAE Systems sources say that Elefsis advised in November last year that it could no longer adhere to these terms.

BAE Systems sources indicate that the company is ready for discussions with the Greek Ministry of Defence to establish whether a revised framework for completion of the remaining vessels can be agreed.

Termination of the Elefsis contract marks a further setback for BAE Systems' naval export business. This comes after the company's annual results, released in February, revealed that the company had lost GBP163 million (USD265 million) relating to existing contracts for Oman and Trinidad and Tobago, both of which have suffered significant programme delays and cost overruns.

It has additionally taken a GBP100 million charge following the Trinidad and Tobago government's September 2010 decision to cancel its contract for three offshore patrol vessels. BAE Systems says it has challenged the move, and itself issued a termination for default notice on the Trinidad and Tobago government. The parties are now proceeding in accordance with the contract's dispute resolution provisions.

Yes idiot, the took out the Exocet MM40 Block III with systems to install on the P-69 who have the old Exocet Block II so to be more effective.

The MM-40 Exocet Block3 in the arsenal of the Navy

With tomorrow's delivery of missile craft Grigoropoulos (P-70), the fourth type Super Vita in the Navy, entering service with advance missiles against surface targets MM40 Exocet Block 3 instaled. Gradually expected to be replaced the missiles MM40 Block 2 Mod1 onboard the third vessel KRYSTALLIDIS (P-69) from Block 3, providing an extension of the maximum distance shot from 72km to 180km and ability to change course in intermediate route points (waypoints) with over 10 of that informations.
http://www.strategyreport.gr/?p=4197

Some people saw this like a maintenance with spare parts, lol. The point of this actions is the Exocet equipment has no logic to be waiting for a solution and roting in the Shipyard in craft number 5. So now the Greek navy have two crafts with the ability to hit targets in 180km instead of 72km.
