The Thaon di Revel class (also known as PPA for «Pattugliatore Polivalente d'Altura») is a class of multipurpose offshore ships built by Fincantieri for the Italian Navy.

It is planned to replace four Soldati class light patrol frigates and eight Minerva class corvettes between 2021/2035. As part of the 2014 Naval Law, a total of sixteen ships are planned and as of 2019 seven vessels have been financed with three more on option.

The class, designed with a high level of modularity and automation, will be delivered in a full, a light+ and a light configuration in terms of different sensors and equipments embarked and can perform multiple functions, ranging from patrol with sea rescue capacity to civil protection operations and, in its most highly equipped version, first line fighting vessel.

According to RID, the Italian Navy ordered the new MBDA TESEO MK/2E heavy-duty missile (TESEO «EVO»), a long-range anti-ship missile with also strategic land attack capability. The missile will have a new terminal «head» with dual RF seeker (Radio Frequency) and, presumably, date the need to even attack ground targets, IIR (Imaging IR). Compared to the predecessor OTOMAT/TESEO, the TESEO «EVO» MK/2E has a double range or more than 360 km. Former OTOMAT is accredited for a range of action of more than 180 km.
