Naval Group launches Gowind corvette for United Arab Emirates

French shipbuilder Naval Group has launched the first Gowind corvette for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Navy in Lorient.

The launch ceremony took place on 4 December 2021 in the presence of H.E. Sheikh Saeed bin Hamdan Al-Nahyan, Commander of the UAE Naval Forces.

The United Arab Emirates ordered in 2019 two Gowind corvettes to be built in France by Naval Group at its Lorient shipyard.

The new corvette, Bani Yas (P110), is the first vessel, with the second to be launched next year.

Naval Group stated that it will train the crews of the UAE Navy, from the basic use of the ship to its operational use.

This training will start in France and will continue in the Arabian Gulf with collective training sessions on operational scenarios in the various fields of combat.
