JEDDAH: The Saudi Arabian Military Industries company (SAMI) and the Spanish state-owned shipbuilding company have launched a joint venture to design and build five cutting edge corvettes.

SAMI and Navantia S.A. signed an agreement in April to create SAMI Navantia Naval Industries during a visit by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to the Spanish capital.

The venture will build five Avante 2200 corvettes and combat management systems for the vessels for the Saudi Ministry of Defense.
