The U212 NFS (Near Future Submarine) Programme is an innovative Submarine project undertaken by the Italian Navy in the framework of the contract managed by the Organization for Joint Armament Cooperation (OCCAR).

It is with great honor and pleasure that ELAC SONAR GmbH announces that with the release of the option for Boat number 3 the NFS program is continuing its path.
