Greece Makes Deal to Buy Italian Warships, Adds Naval Power

ATHENS – Further building an arsenal amid worries of a conflict with Turkey, Greece has signed a memorandum with the Italian Fincantieri shipbuilder to acquire four smaller Corvette warships.

The agreement, said Defense Post, includes integrated logistics and in-service solutions for the Hellenic Navy and was signed at the Italian Embassy, adding it supports a “high-profile process” set by the Hellenic National Defence Ministry.

Besides building the Corvettes, the suppliers will work alongside Fincantieri to support several existing and future naval programs in Greece as Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has concentrated on defense.

That’s in response to growing Turkish provocations and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warning Turkey “may come suddenly one night,” and invade, and Turkey repeatedly violating Greek airspace with fighter jets.

Greece earlier made deals to get French Rafale fighter jets and warships and also American vessels to buttress the Navy, with Turkey also challenging the sovereignty of Greek seas.
