Description

The Combattante FS65 developed by CMN is a compact vessel with stealth lines which can reach a high speed and offer an important fire power. The vessel is designed for littoral warfare defence operations against air and surface threats, patrolling tasks, law enforcement and ISR missions.

The Combattante FS65 combines the spirit of previous proven Combattante classes with 21st Century technologies: Stealth and Electronic Warfare.

The Combattante FS65 has been designed to meet the needs of modern navies who wish to maintain their ability to take action combining speed and firepower while optimizing their acquisition costs.

Technical Data

Design
Stealth and compact design.
Main design requirements included:
» High speed (34 knots) to allow for lighting fast attacks and rapid response
» Seakeeping
» Endurance
The Combattante FS65 limited crew (43 sailors) may cross a distance of 2,500 miles with a weapon system similar to those found on vessels from upper classes (Corvettes and Frigates).
Missions
The Combattante FS65 is a high performance compact and multifunction ship able to perform area surveillance tasks as well as anti-air, anti-surface and electronic warfare missions.

Typical missions include:
» Fast strike against surface, air or coastal targets
» Coastal and off-shore patrolling
» Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR)
» Naval and law enforcement application
» Integration to a naval task force for Anti Surface, Anti Air and Anti Missile Warfare
» Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) monitoring & surveillance
» Interception & Control
» Support to operationsof Land Forces
» UAVs ISTAR operation (Intelligence, Surveillance, Targeting Acquisition & Reconnaissance)

Missions against coastal targets may be conducted through the use of the 76mm gun and MM40 blkIII Exocet.
There is space for two Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats (RHIB): 4.25m & 6.50m (up to 8.00m).
Weapons

The Combattante FS 65 offers a very high firepower for a 65 meters vessel:
» 1x Oto Melara 76mm SR main gun
» 1x MSI Defence SEAHAWK SIGMA 30mm RWS with Thales Lightweight Multirole Missile (LMM)
» 6x MBDA VL Mica surface to air missiles
» 8x MBDA MM40 blk III Exocet anti-ship missiles

The vessel has been designed with provisions for modularity. As such, the 30mm gun system at the stern may be replaced by a Raytheon Mk49 mod 3 Guided Missile Launcher (with 21x RAM Surface to Air missiles). The 76mm main gun may be fitted with Oto Melara's Vuclano rounds to increase capability and range against land targets.

Sensors, Electronics and Decoys
Sensors are all grouped in a single "C-MAST" integrated mast.
Developed in a partnership between CMN, Cassidian and Ineo Defense, C-MAST is a single compact and lightweight mast, which houses 2D, 3D and navigation radars, optronic, electronic warfare and communications systems.
2x Decoy launchers
Engines/Propulsion
4x high speed diesel engines with 4x fixed pitch propellers
