1.South African Valour Class MEKO A-200 anti-air frigates
Four Valour category MEKO A-200 anti-air frigates were delivered to the South African Navy.
A band together of South African companies, accepted as the SA Corvette Group, counting Altech Defence Systems, Kentron, LIW gulf of Denel, advanced problem Solutions, Saab Avitronics, Grintek Electronics, Reutech and African Defence Systems (a combined venture theater company between Altech and Thales), is reliable for combining the weapons and electronics subsystems into a flattering integrated combat suite.
MEKO A-Class stealth design features
Stealth design features have been introduced to reduce the radar cross-section. Hull panels are alternately angled to avoid large flat surfaces, an arrangement called ‘X-form’. Right angle corners are avoided and the decks and superstructure have been decluttered. The bridge wings present on the original MEKO have been eliminated and the bridge is completely enclosed.
A reduction of about 75% on the ship’s infrared signature has been achieved by elimination of the funnel, and instead, hot exhaust gases are ducted through a horizontal system.
Seawater is injected into the exhaust duct to cool the exhaust fumes, before being expelled just above the waterline.
