Hensoldt has signed a contract worth over €100M with mission combat system integrator Thales, to deliver its TRS-4D naval radar to the future class F126 frigates of the German Navy, Hensoldt writes in a joint press release.
Contracted in 2020, F126 is the latest frigate programme for the German Navy. The F126 class will consist of four ships (with an option for two more ships). The programme also includes multiple land-based test and training sites. The first frigate F126 is expected to be delivered to the customer in 2028. The entire programme will run for over ten years.
Hensoldt’s TRS-4D radar will be installed in its non-rotating version with four fixed-panel arrays. The integration of the radar on the ships and at the shore installations will be done by Thales. First deliveries are scheduled for 2025.
