A new class of multi-misson patrol and combat ships for Bulgarian Navy. The planned quantity is 2 ships in the next 5 years. It is expected that they will replace the single Koni frigate (№.11 Smeli) and the two Pauk corvettes (№.13 Reshitelni and №.14 Bodri) in Bulgarian Navy.

Lürssen Werft won the competition. Both ships will be build in «MTG Delfin» in Varna, Bulgaria.

It is believed that the project is based on Lürssen's OPV90. There are only few details about the ship's weaponry and electronic suit. All the data provided here is estimated.
