The strategy also involves bolstering and upgrading the fleet with new FDI frigates, exploring collaborative construction of new Constellation frigates, and establishing a defense innovation ecosystem through the Greek Center for Innovation Development (ELKAK).

“We want to change the current reality of ‘buying foreign arms off the shelf’. To strengthen our own defense industry and move ahead to advanced production of multiplier forces,” Dendias said.
