The Polish government has formally expressed interest in acquiring two of the Royal Australian Navy's (RAN's) three remaining 4,267-tonne Adelaide-class FFG-7 frigates, a Department of Defence (DoD) spokesperson in Canberra confirmed to Jane's on 12 April.

However, the spokesperson pointed out that no decision or agreement had yet been made, and that the disposal of the FFGs, which are based on US Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigates, would be subject to export controls "and other considerations".

Two of the six modified Oliver Hazard Perry-class vessels built for the RAN - four in the United States and two in Australia - were retired in 2005 and 2008.

  3. I concur with Smilinghari, why don't Poland purchase brand new ships? Well we will not know for sure what are the reasons, but I do believe its something to do with there defense budget. Take note that Poland has several modernization projects being implemented all at the same time. I do think the Polish government is inclined to purchase new equipment for their Navy but maybe at a later date. Most probably if this interest for two Adelaide Class pushes thru it would only be a stop-gap measure until such time they have the necessary budget for new built ships.

    2. Ya Bob...polandia sedang melakukan modernisasi besar2an, dr rencana melipatgandakan armada F-16, pengadaan instalasi anti rudal balistik, heli uh-60 dll. Tapi sebagian pendanaannya disubsidi dr fasilitas FMS yang disediakan pihak US.

      Tampaknya kali ini polandia menggunakan "aji mumpung" utk mengakuisisi eks FFG-7 aussy...menggunakan platform buatan US akan semakin mempermudah proses perijinan dan pendanaan utk melakukan akuisisi, upgrade sensor dan persenjataannya dari sumber yang sama yaitu US.

      Kemudahan ini tidak akan didapatkan polandia kalo ia membeli kaprang dari damen atau dcns...selain itu deliveri ex adelaide yang telah dimodernisasi akan lebih cepat dan murah dibanding membeli kapal brand new.
