Defence and security company Saab unveiled today a scale model of its new MCMV 80 vessel at the Undersea Defence Technology (UDT) 2017 exhibition currently held in Bremen, Germany.

According to Saab, the MCMV 80 can be tailored to a wide range of different missions. Containerized mission modules allow you to conduct operations both in the minefield and outside. With a helicopter flight deck and a UAV hangar you add logistic and reconnaissance operation capabilities. Two stern ramps and a launching crane enables the launch of ASUV, ASV, ROV and RHIB's or interceptors. Together, it makes the MCMV 80 the perfect platform for a wide range of manned and unmanned operations.

The arrangement of the MCMV is focusing on supporting lean operations. For example, the operator room and the bridge are integrated in one 360° 'superbridge' to facilitate communication and enhance situational awareness operator, the navigation and optionally the flotilla command.

The MCMV 80 is a new design following Saab's evolutionary design approach, meaning that innovative ideas are introduced step by step, together with proven designs. This enables Saab to provide completely new solutions with low technical risk, without having to include obsolete technology or ideas.

The MCMV 80 can be delivered with different levels of signature management. From lower MCM signatures and less stringent requirements up to the highest shockproof requirements and stealth capabilities. Similar to the Visby class corvettes, MCMV 80 benefits from the use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic in the hull superstructure.
