Designed and built by Italian shipyard Fincantieri, the "Abu Dhabi class" corvette for the United Arab Emirates has been developed from the "Cigala Fulgosi" design on the basis of which four "Comandanti" class vessels were built for the Italian Navy.

The cutting edge ship will mainly carry out patrolling and surveillance activities and may be employed in antisubmarine, anti-aircraft and surface activities. It will be able to exchange tactical data in real time with other naval vessels, helicopters and on shore bases and will be able to provide support and shelter for Emirate Navy helicopters.
