By Srijanee Chakraborthy

South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has signed a contract with the Department of National Defense, Republic of the Philippines to build two 2,600t frigates for the Philippine Navy.

The 107m-long frigates will be a smaller and light combatant version of the Incheon-class frigate that is currently being used by the Republic of Korea Navy (ROKN).

Propelled with combined diesel and diesel (CODAD) propulsion system, the frigates will be able to operate at a maximum speed of 25k and can cover a 4,500-nanometre range at a cruising speed of 15k.
