According to Remontowa shipbuilding, Kormoran II is dedicated to mine hunting tasks in Polish EEZ (Exclusive Economic Zone), as well as in tactical task forces in Baltic and North Sea and other auxiliary tasks defined by Polish Ministry of Defense. The vessel will be designed with great care to achieve low signature and high maneuverability, thanks to use of cycloid propellers driven by diesel engines.
