VARD 7 115

Type:Patrol Vessel
Class:Offshore Patrol Vessel
Design:VARD 7 115

The VARD 7 115 NGOPV provides air, surface and sub-surface surveillance and engagement capabilities consistent with robust OPV littoral, task group light escort, sovereignty and constabulary roles, and includes an operations room accommodating up to 16 operator positions with a secure, segregated server room.

A rotating electronically scanned array medium range multi-mode radar supports situational awareness, early detection and tracking and cueing of surface and air threats beyond the main gun and point defence missiles. This along with 360 degree electro-optical surveillance and missile warning systems complement the weapons capabilities – a 76 mm super-rapid gun system and SeaRAM. A fire control radar supports the main gun.
