Pohjanmaa class is a series of four multi-role corvettes currently under development for the Finnish Navy as part of the Squadron 2020 project.

They will replace seven older vessels that have been or are due to be decommissioned: the minelayer Pohjanmaa, two Hämeenmaa-class minelayers and four Rauma-class missile boats.

The vessels will be designed and constructed in Rauma, Finland. While the actual construction phase will be staggered over 2022-2025 the class will be fully operational by 2028.
