After last 15 June’s launch at Fincantieri shipbuilding group’s Muggiano shipyard (La Spezia), the new generation first-of-class Pattugliatore Polivalente d’Altura (PPA) combatant patrol vessel Paolo Thaon de Revel (P 430) hit the water today. After completing all the necessary activities and checks, the vessel was transferred from the floating dock to Fincantieri’s Muggiano shipyard pier for completion of fitting-out in advance to first sea trials in October. The first-of-class PPA is to be delivered in 2021.
