The Greek Defense Minister, Nikos Panagiotopoulos, last December stated that the first frigate will be delivered in 2025 and the next two probably in 2026, while he also stated that the armament program for the Hellenic Navy ships will be completed with the modernization of four Greek MEKO 200 (Hydra-class) frigates and the purchase of four corvettes.
