The Italian Navy took delivery of the ITS (Italian Ship) Virginio Fasan, the first frigate in the anti-submarine warfare version, known as FOC ASW.

The ASW warship is equipped with state of the art ASW systems, including active and passive towed sonar, torpedoes and decoys launchers and a panoramic echo sounder.

This accomplishment comes as a result of eight months of qualification tests and the optimisation of the flight deck, with 34 sea trials used in order to demonstrate the reliability of onboard systems and to train the Navy crew.
