Description: The Badar-class corvettes were designed in the United States by Tacoma shipyard for the US Navy and built in Germany by Lurssen shipyard for the Navy of Saudi Arabia between the late 1970s and early 1980s. These ships are well suited for anti-submarine (ASW) and anti-surface warfare (ASuW) missions. Saudi Arabia took delivery of four ships between 1981 and 1983.

The Badar-class corvettes propulsion system combines two diesel cruise engines developing 3,058-shp and one LM2500 gas turbine for boost developing 23,000-shp. They are provided with SQS-56/DE1160B sonar, SPS-40B 2D air search radar, SLQ-32(V)1 electronic warfare system. The weapon system includes an OTO 76mm dual-purpose gun, one Phalanx gun system, two 20mm guns, one 81mm mortar, eight Harpoon anti-ship missiles, two 40mm grenade launchers, and two triple 12.75-in torpedo launchers.
