Construction Begins for Canada’s New Warship Fleet

Construction has started on Canada’s new fleet of Canadian Surface Combatants.

The new fleet of warships will be known as River-class destroyers, and the first three ships will be named His Majesty’s Canadian Ships Fraser, Saint-Laurent, and Mackenzie.

The first River-class destroyer, HMCS Fraser, is expected in the early 2030s, with the final ship expected by 2050.

The new ships will have enhanced underwater sensors, state-of-the-art radar, and modern weapons including a guided missile and will be helicopter-capable.

It will replace both the Iroquois-class destroyers and the Halifax-class frigates.
