Qahir Class Corvettes, Oman

Posted by newsonline at 4:55 PM 0 Comments

In 1996 Oman took delivery of two 83m corvettes, Qahir Al Amwaj and Al Mua'zzar, built by Vosper Thornycroft (UK) Ltd of Southampton. Project Muheet to build the two corvettes was completed in just over four years.

The ship is based on a stealth version of the Mark 9 corvette. The hull and superstructure have been designed with features including the cladding of surfaces with radar absorbent material and angled sides to reduce the radar cross section. The Qahir Al Amwaj class has speed of 25 knots up to Sea State 5 and 15 knots in Sea State 6.
