The latest issue of Global Defence Technology highlights the growing opportunities in the OPV and corvette sector of the naval surface warship market, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region. While attention is often focused on big-ticket items like aircraft carriers, the OPV and corvette play a crucial role in littoral maritime security operations.

The magazine also covers the war in Ukraine and features an interview with Lord Hannay on the UK-EU response to Russia’s invasion.

Corvettes and OPVs: Global Defence Technology 145

In a booming naval surface warship market, the OPV and corvette sector, particularly in the Asia-Pacific, offers increasing opportunity. The growth of the global surface vessel market in recent years has been driven by a number of factors, such as fleet recapitalization and the need to limit China’s ambitions in the South and East China seas.

While attention centers on the development of big-ticket items such as aircraft carriers, it is the humble OPV and corvette that will be tasked with most littoral maritime security operations, not only in the Asia-Pacific region but also beyond.

Elsewhere, in the air domain, the tripartite development of the GCAP program is seeing the UK, Italy, and Japan attempt to develop a true next-generation fighter platform, potentially up to the vaunted sixth generation of air combat aircraft.

The latest issue of Global Defence Technology also covers the war in Ukraine and features an exclusive interview with Lord Hannay, who discusses a UK House of Lords European Affairs Committee report on the UK-EU response to Russia’s invasion of its neighbor.

Readers can access the magazine for free online, whether they are using a desktop, tablet, or smartphone.
