On the 15th November 2019, the OCCAR Director visited the ITS Spartaco SCHERGAT, the ninth Italian FREMM (out of ten ships under contract). The outfitting of the frigate is being concluded at the Fincantieri Muggiano shipyard in La Spezia. The aim is to deliver her to the Italian Navy in March 2020, fully on schedule and ready to be integrated with the rest of the fleet.
As a result of the intensive work of the teams of Naval Group, its industrial partners, the French Navy, DGA and OCCAR, the 6th French Multi-Mission Frigate ASW (Anti-Submarine Warfare) Class FREMM Follow on Ship “Normandie” was accepted by OCCAR and delivered to the French Navy in agreement with the Direction Générale de l’Armement on 16th July 2019.
The delivery of the first two Lithuanian VILKAS Infantry Fighting Vehicles took place on 9 July in Vilnius, Lithuania. This is an historical milestone for the Lithuanian Armed Forces but also for OCCAR, as it demonstrates the level of support provided by the organisation to its customers be it OCCAR Member States or OCCAR Programme Participating States.
