Lacroix Defence is taking advantage of its presence at DEFEA 2023 to formally confirm the Hellenic Navy's choice to equip its defence and intervention frigates (FDI) with Sylena Mk1 decoy launcher systems and associated ammunition.

The defence entity of the Etienne Lacroix Group confirms with this new announcement, its real dynamic in the sector of naval selfprotection, but also the credibility of its systems and specific effects, for the protection of 1st rank ships and navies around the world.

The three defence and intervention frigates for the Hellenic Navy are designed and produced by Naval Group in Lorient. They will be delivered in 2025 for the first two units and in 2026 for the third, and will rapidly and durably reinforce the capabilities of the surface fleet of the Hellenic Navy.

“Lacroix is delighted with this choice and thanks the Hellenic Navy, as well as Naval Group and DGA (Direction Générale de l’Armement) program teams who have worked over the last 3 years to make it a reality. This is a strong signal of recognition for us and all the industries involved in this project, which underlines French excellence in the naval field. For the LACROIX teams, this is a recognition of the quality of our SYLENA systems, and a strong signal of confidence in the effectiveness and credibility of our effects and solutions for the protection of New Generation Ships such as the FDI. François Moulinier, COO of Lacroix Defence.

Sylena MK1 4launcher system, will therefore reinforce the protection and armament system planned for the FDI HN, by equipping them with antimissile solutions (Infrared and Electro Magnetic of new generation, by using the technology known as corner reflectors).
