Hydra (F-452) is the lead ship of the Greek Hydra-class frigate and flagship of the Hellenic Navy. The ship was built in the same shipyard as the Blohm + Voss MEKO 200 frigate class, on which its design was based.

The Hydra-class frigate has a length of 117.5 m, a beam of 14.8 m, a draught of 6.0 m, and a fully-loaded displacement of 4,000 tons.

They have high-level specifications for shock resistance, stiffness requirements for the fire control and radar systems, and blast and gas pressure resistance to retain the integrity of the onboard weapon systems. The hull is constructed of high tensile steel with a yield strength of S355 N/mm² 'structural steel grades'.

She can reach a top speed of 31 knots (57 km/h) with a maximum cruising range of 4,100 nautical miles (7,600 km) at 18 knots (33 km/h).

The ship is divided into twelve self-sufficient watertight sections, which function almost independently of each other. Each compartment also has independent data transfer to the ship’s Naval Automation System, Nautos.
