Horizon-class frigate

The Horizon class is a class of air-defence destroyers in service with the French Navy and the Italian Navy. The programme started as the Common New Generation Frigate (CNGF), a multi-national collaboration to produce a new generation of air-defence destroyers. In Italy the class is known as the Orizzonte class, which translates to "horizon" in French and English. The UK then joined France and Italy in the Horizon-class frigate programme; however, differing national requirements, workshare arguments and delays led to the UK withdrawing on 26 April 1999 and starting its own national project, the Type 45 destroyer. The FREMM multipurpose frigate are currently under construction using the same company structure as the Horizon project.
