The leadship was built in France by CMN shipyard while the 5 remaining ships of the class are to be built locally by Abu Dhabi Ship Building. The first locally built unit is at the stage of platform testing and combat system integration. While the third corvette of the class is already afloat, it is not impossible that one or more vessels of the class constructed in Abu Dhabi were finally completed at CMN Cherbourg.
