Ah pronto, assim sempre faz mais sentido...A Marinha que esteja atenta a este projecto ou outros semelhantes, já que a médio prazo pode ser uma solução para a substituição das VdG.

Algo que não faria muito sentido, na minha singela opinião, dada a disparidade de equipamentos e armamento entre estas fragatas e aquelas que nós possuímos.
Defence Ministers from Belgium & Netherlands Sign MoU on Common Procurement of Vessels The Belgian Navy and the Royal Netherlands Navy will replace their existing mine counter measure vessels and frigates with vessels of the same type. The ministers of both countries signed a memorandum of understanding yesterday in Brussels. Belgium also sees opportunity to provide crew members for the Joint Support Ship logistic Zr. Ms. Karel Doorman. Netherlands will assist in the training of the Belgian Light Brigade amphibious. Computer rendering showing the early design of the M-class frigate replacement. Picture: Dutch Defence Materiel Organisation. Training, ship maintenance and even sailors of both navies are already extensively integrated now. "The joint procurement M-class frigates replacement and new MCM vessels is the next logical step in our cooperation. This allows us to deepen our collective strength and to be operationally efficient" said Netherlands defence Minister Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert.The minister underlined the importance of the joint procurement for maritime countries like the Netherlands and Belgium. "With our vessels we can protect our ports and the maritime supply lines that are crucial for the open economies that characterize our countries." For the replacement of the so-called M-class frigates Netherlands takes the lead, for mine hunters Belgium.The Belgian Defence Minister Steven Vandeput agreed the importance of cooperation. "To maintain a broad and balanced armed forces our cooperation must continue, on a European level with our neighbors. Military cooperation only makes sense if there is a win-win situation for all parties, "he said. To cope with current and future challenges Minister Vandeput issued a white paper on defence last summer (caller Strategic Vision 2030). Cooperation with the Netherlands is an important part of the white paper..Belgium plans to provide a medical unit or helicopter detachment for the Dutch logistics support and supply vessel Zr. Ms. Karel Doorman. Minister Hennis welcomes this contribution.http://www.navyrecognition.com/index.php/news/defence-news/2016/december-2016-navy-naval-forces-defense-industry-technology-maritime-security-global-news/4631-defence-ministers-from-belgium-netherlands-sign-mou-on-common-procurement-of-vessels.html
Até que ponto num futuro próximo este tipo de cooperação poderá acontecer entre Portugal e Espanha? Traria vantagens? Será que se conseguiria defender os interesses dos dois países sem a sobreposição da vontade de um país sobre o outro?

Spain Green-Lights New Generation Frigate Project(Source: Forecast International; issued August 17; Updated August 18, 2015)MADRID --- Spain's government has given the go-ahead for the project launch regarding a procurement of new-generation frigates. The new class of ships will be referred to as the F-110 series and will replace the six Santa Maria-class frigates (F-80) commissioned into Spanish Navy service between 1986 and 1994. Together with Spain's state-owned shipbuilding giant, Navantia, the Spanish Navy has already defined the requirements and undertaken concept studies for a new class of F-110 frigates. A feasibility study conducted by Navantia between January and July of 2014 resulted in a baseline design of the ship, allowing the Spanish Navy to move on to the project definition phase. That phase is now underway with Madrid authorizing an initial research and design (R&D) contract worth EUR135.3 million for a fully-costed system-level design. A detailed design-and-build contract is then expected to follow in early 2016 with delivery of the first vessel planned for 2022. From 2022 through 2030 the new F-110s will be brought into service and the Santa Maria-class phased out. The new ships will be expected to operate in high-threat scenarios, forming battlegroups or performing alone in coastal domains. The ships mission requirements will include air-defense, asymmetric warfare, maritime safety, naval power projection and military-civil cooperation. An integrated mast incorporating the communication system, radar, electronic warfare and optronics is rumored to be the main feature of the new ships.
The Spanish government has awarded the first contract for the F-110 project which officially launch the program of this new-generation of frigates.
