“Classe Tamandaré” Program

The “Tamandaré” Class Program comes from an immediate need to renew the naval resources of the Squadron, aiming to increase the defense capacity (monitoring and protection).

They will be ships with high combat power, capable of protecting the extensive Brazilian maritime area, with more than 5.7 thousand km², called “Blue Amazon”, to carry out search and rescue operations and meet international commitments, among other tasks.

The Program is a fundamental element and an indispensable means, not only for the control of maritime areas of interest, preventing access to undesirable means by the sea, but also for the country to act under the aegis of international organizations and in support of policy in a way compatible with the insertion of Brazil in the international scenario.
