Gowind® is an exceptional naval asset for missions ranging from counter-piracy to sea control and denial including anti-submarine warfare operations. Equipped with a SETIS® combat management system, based on the one equipping the FREMM frigates, Gowind® provides the full range of warfare capabilities. These corvettes have been designed to be simple to operate, easy to maintain and efficient. Gowind® platforms and mission systems can be tailored to customer requirements for an optimum trade-off between homeland security and naval combat capabilities.

The Scorpene 2000 submarines, already chosen by the Royal Malaysian Navy, represent the state-of-the-art in submarine design and construction and benefit from the latest technologies developed for nuclear-powered classes operated by the French Navy, particularly as regards acoustic discretion and combat system performance. Therewith, on the occasion of the LIMA show, the DCNS Group will showcase an innovative concept ship, the SMX®-OCEAN, the transposition of a BARRACUDA SSN design to a conventional submarine design. Thanks to the selected architectural options and the innovations it incorporates, the SMX®-OCEAN achieves exceptional performance while also being the first “green” submarine and fully compliant with the Marpol international convention with regard to the treatment of garbage and sewage. At last, the Scorpene 1000 submarine designed for navies needing a submarine optimized for littoral missions whilst maintaining the necessary strike force to protect national interests and to enforce sovereignty in blue waters.
