🇺🇸US Navy has formed "Task Group Greyhound” a new force generation model that will provide warships at readiness to hunt Russian submarines in the Atlantic.

🇬🇷Hellenic Navy will buy 🇫🇷French FDI Frigates. Selected ahead of Dutch, Italian, German, Spanish, US and (late entry) UK Arrowhead-140 options.

The FDI is a very credible frigate but considerably more expensive than Arrowhead 140 (and pig ugly)

The €5 billion deal is for 3 frigates and 3 Gowind class corvettes (with option for one more of each). Plus additional Rafale jets.

This is part of a wider mutual 🇫🇷🇬🇷Defence Pact that effectively ties the French into supporting the Greeks in their conflict with Turkey🇹🇷

(All great NATO allies)

“This is definitely a political decision, not one taken by the Greek navy”
