The boat was the sixth and final vessel produced for Norway under which DCNS was the combat system design authority and co-supplier.
The fast patrol boats are about 164 feet long and designed specifically for maritime safety and security missions in Norway's littoral waters. The vessels are each armed with eight anti-ship missiles and a 76mm gun.
The communication systems and sensor suites onboard the vessels are compatible for NATO-led operations.
DCNS's Norwegian partners for the vessels were Umoe Mandal and Kongsberg Defense and Aerospace, through the Skjold Prime Consortium.
The first of the six vessels, P961-Storm, was delivered to the Norwegian navy in September 2010 and the second, the P962-Skudd the following month. The third was delivered in 2011 and the fourth and fifth last year.
Under a recent, separate contract DCNS will provide follow-on technical support of the SENIT 2000 Combat Management System on the six Skjold vessels.
