The Royal New Zealand Navy's (RNZN's) new multirole vessel (MRV) was launched from the Merwede shipyard in Hardinxveld-Giessendam, near Rotterdam on 11 February 2006.

The 9,000-tonne MRV - as yet unnamed but allocated the pennant number L 421 - is one of seven ships being built for the RNZN under the NZD500 million (USD337.3 million) Project Protector fleet recapitalisation programme. Tenix Defence, prime contractor for Project Protector, is building two offshore patrol vessels (OPVs) at its Williamstown facility near Melbourne, Australia, and a further four inshore patrol vessels (IPVs) at Whangarei, on New Zealand's north island.
