Description

The Combattante FS56 developed by CMN is a compact vessel with stealth lines which can reach a very high speed and offer an important fire power. It is the perfect vessel for Intelligence Surveillance & Reconnaissance as well as fast strike against surface or coastal targets.

The Combattante FS56 combines the spirit of previous proven Combattante classes with 21st Century technologies: Stealth and Electronic Warfare.

The Combattante FS56 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 (38 knots) to allow for lighting fast attacks and rapid response
» Seakeeping
» Endurance
The Combattante FS 56 limited crew (32 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 FS 56 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:
» Operating as part of a naval force
» Interception of enemy forces
» Patrol in international and territorial waters and in the Exclusive Economic Zone
» Air and surface surveillance
» Intelligence gathering

Missions against coastal targets may be conducted through the use of the 76mm gun and MM40 blkIII Exocet.
Weapons

The Combattante FS 56 offers a very high firepower for a 56 meters vessel:
» 1x Oto Melara 76mm SR main gun
» 1x BAE Systems Bofors 40 Mk4 40mm gun at the stern
» 2x 30mm or 20mm remote weapon systems
» 8x MBDA MM40 blkIII Exocet anti-ship missiles

The vessel has been designed with provisions for modularity. As such, the 40mm 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.
